It is that time of year again – the annual Populuxe Seed Bank Fundraiser is now on!I’ve been running this little fundraiser now for several years, and it’s a massive help to keep the seed bank running each and every year.
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 growers and gardeners around the world. 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’m doing something a bit different this year as well – I’ll be offering extra surplus seed from 2016 at a discount, so be sure to check out those listings as well.
As always, once these seeds are gone, they won’t be regrown and offered again for another 7-10 years (depending on the species), so get them while you can.
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!
