Stamford Seed Savers is a newly formed organization dedicated to the promotion of gardening, agriculture, and sustainable living in the community of Stamford, Vermont. Currently, we are working on two projects:
Our first project is a seed bank to store open-pollinated seed varieties and to provide information about seed saving. The seed bank is an open community resource located in the town library and available to residents interested growing plant varieties adapted to our local environment. Come and see what is available.
Our second project will be to build a community garden on the site of the old tennis court at the school. The garden will be made available to teachers for hands on lessons, and we hope that it will provide some fresh produce to the school cafeteria.
We view these projects as a means to both strengthen local food security, and as a way to bring our community together around common interests.
If you are already an avid gardener and want to share your experience with others or you are interested in learning more about gardening and seed saving, you are invited to attend one of our bi-weekly meetings on Tuesday, at 5:30 PM, at the Stamford Town Library.
If you are unable to attend a meeting but like to stay informed about our activities, please register with your contact information and we will do our best to keep you informed.
