That’s right, it’s that time of year again – the seed sale fundraiser is now on!
What’s all this about, you ask? Well, once a year after bankable quantities have been safely stowed away for future years, I separate out all the varieties that I have a surplus of. Those seeds then get packaged up and made available to you guys!
Many of the varieties I grow are rare or hard to obtain, and have very little information about them available on the web. Getting them back out to you, the seed savers, is my main goal with this bank, with the hopes that you’ll grow out and then re-share the variety with your friends, family and community. I’ve said it time and time again – seeds with one source available are almost no good to anybody.
Head on over to the Populuxe Seed Bank Etsy Shop and take a look at what’s being offered this year, and if something strikes your fancy, grab them while you can (I had lower quantities available than previous years, so popular varieties are sure to sell out).
All seeds offered are tested for germination as well, so you can be sure you’re not getting bum seed.
Your support with purchasing seeds through the annual seed sale is how this seed bank gets almost all of its financial support through the next year. The funds collected primarily going towards acquiring new seeds. Any additional funds go to keeping this website up and running so I can keep that information flowing to anybody who wants to access it.
By purchasing your seeds through the seed bank you’re helping save new varieties that might otherwise be lost, and by re-sharing the varieties you acquire from the bank you’re keeping many varieties on the verge of extinction alive.
So for all of you who purchase seeds through the bank – thank you!
