‘SOUTH SOUND SEED STEWARDS’ ANNOUNCES SEED SAVING CLASSES


South Sound Seed Stewards Mission Statement

Knowing that in our present geopolitical state, many seed companies, which have provided the non-hybrid and open-pollinated varieties, are no longer in business and/or are producing hybrid varieties mainly for the commercial growers, South Sound Seed Stewards has organized for the purpose of:

* Encouraging community independence and self-reliance through producing and sharing locally-adapted, open-pollinated seeds.
* Providing for the home gardener an educational resource in sustainable gardening.
* Protecting and collecting the seed from our non-hybrid, open- pollinated varieties
* Creating a Seed Bank of non-hybrid, open-pollinated seeds which have been acclimated to our region.

Safe Seed Pledge
We shall never knowingly buy, sell or distribute genetically engineered seeds or plants.

Check out our web site www.southsoundseedstewards.org and our blog at www.S4gardenblog.blogspot.com.

– Learn the art and science of growing and saving your own vegetable seeds. Classes offered by the South Sound Seed Stewards begin on Jan. 9th 2012. The group meets at 7pm the second Monday of each month at the Yelm Adult Community Center, 16530 103rd Ave., Yelm.
