seed source and tool/book catalog
There is a beautiful group, sadly under-recognized, called the Abundant Life
A small, non-profit in Port Townsend, WA , ALSF is dedicated to being a seed
bank for heirlooms, particularly those which are endangered or rare. They
also make 1-time donations to groups willing to learn and do seed saving.
Great catalog, too! for seeds, tools, books....
Wonderful, wonderful people.
For 4 years, I've been growing an endangered bean known as "Iroquois,"
originally from that tribe, and sending 1/2 the harvest to them for safe
keeping and sharing.
Please spread the word about this fine group!
