Sowing a Culture of Interdependence
Our library has just completed our first year as a Seed Saving Library. Overall it was a success. We had some fantastic partners and the turnout for programs, at least initially, was very good. We were never really successful in getting the 'check out a seed, bring back a seed' part of the project on track. We just weren't sure how to resolve the issue of where the returned seeds were coming from.
Now we are planning our second season and I am concerned about the "sophomore jinx": loss of enthusiasm, inability to move the project forward, and mission creep, programming on anything and everything under the sun that relates to the great outdoors.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
