Seedy Sunday 2012 - Seed Exchange Area

Seed Exchange Area: Seedy Sunday 2012
The Seed Exchange area is an integral part of the event. Anybody is welcome to participate. You can bring your own seeds to trade. If possible, package them ahead of time into smaller envelopes (See details below) or envelopes, and volunteers will be available to help you divide up seed on site. Seed packages are traded on a system of trust, one package for one package. 
  If you do not have your own seeds to trade, you will also be able to take seeds home for small donations. All proceeds will go to Seeds of Diversity Canada. 
 If you have any questions, need more information, or would like to donate seeds ahead of time, please do not hesitate to contact me: 

Safe Seed Pledge

urbantomato has signed the Council for Responsible Genetics
Safe Seed Pledge:  
"Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe 
and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who 
want an alternative, 
We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants.  
The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families 
or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that 
genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is 
necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support 
agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy 
people and communities."

Woohoo! It's that time of year again! Time to start thinking about seed exchanges again. This is a preliminary announcement. More details to follow soon! 
If you are interested in vending, showcasing your community group, donating seeds, doing a workshop, volunteering or have any suggestions, contact me!
