SEED PROTOCOL DISCUSSION GROUP NOTES
My strategy when I wrote this Plant your Dream Blog was that seed library leaders could work toward a national protocol, building upon the protocols accepted by the Simpson Seed Library. I realize now that there are restrictive laws in some states such as CA that appear to block seed exchanges….the legal minds truly need to be at work here. For the states that are more lenient, I feel the Protocols need to be developed as well as looking toward changes where Seed Laws are needed.

UPDATE AUGUST 25, 2014
HERE ARE TWO MORE BLOGS WRITTEN AUGUST 25 ABOUT THE SEED LAWS, ESPECIALLY IN CA THAT APPEAR TO BLOCK SEED EXCHANGES
MORE FOOD GROWERS NEEDED BUT SEED LAWS MAY BE RESTRICTIVE
SEED LAWS IN CA APPEAR TO BE STRICTER THAN IN PENNSYLVANIA
It appears that where Seed Laws in Pennsylvania can be circumvented to allow for seed swaps and Seed Library members to organize their own independent Seed Banks, this does not appear to be the case in California 6:59 pm; August 25, 2014
