On the interpretation of seed exchange law

Posted on August 23, 2014 at 3:14pm 2 Comments

The language being used now to interpret the seed laws in each of the U.S. states will set a precedent for the future of seed swapping in the US. Since this has gotten national coverage, and if this is really spreading to multiple states, then how this debate plays out will have broad consequences for interpretations of seed exchange laws.

Hi Devon - that's exactly what I mean.  A click nets a response but it's delayed - for a public used to Facebook where the click is pretty instantaneous, I fear most find the site 'clunky.'  I will post more blog posts in an effort to generate more interest,  I like the idea of a seed saving network - I hope we can have a nationwide active network of seed savers.  It's a new field and we need to know how others handle problems or opportunities.  I want to see other seed libraries organization chart and know how their procedures.  What does a state of the art seed library look like? I'm not a techie, but I can give some content. And if we can make it feel less clunky, I think this can be a very important tool in the seed saver's tool kit!

Hi Devon, I need to sign in here more often.  I wish there was less lag time on the site, and I wish there was more activity to hold more interest.  Thanks for the add request and I hope we can find some good things to make this a more happening place!
