Donations for seed bank

Donations for seed bank

MAY 2015 | SANDY TIFFIN

THE DELORANIE Community Garden is seeking the donation of a cool, dark space for a COMMUNITY SEED BANK.

It could be under someone’s house, a cellar even, or a well-insulated shed. It would also need access to water and have electricity for a fridge.

Enough space is required to process seeds, store seeds in cabinets and conduct germination tests.

A seed bank of locally produced seeds, proven viable in our local climate and soils, is a vital part of community food security.

If anyone knows of a suitable space, please contact Sandy Tiffin on 6369 5510, or Catherine Smith on 6362 2938.
