UPPER VALLEY SEED SAVERS

 

Upper Valley Seed Savers Community Seed Catalog

2022

 

Over the past couple of years, many people have started growing more of their own food, but seeds can be expensive, especially if you are facing financial difficulty.  If you're having trouble getting seeds for your garden, we would like to help. We have a limited quantity of seeds to donate to our Upper Valley neighbors who could use and benefit from them. Click the link above to see the catalog and request form.

 

We will be taking requests until May 1, 2022

Contact us if you have any questions: uvseedsavers@gmail.com

 


 

 

Welcome!

This workspace is for the Upper Valley Seed Savers to keep track of things we do.

We also hope that it is a useful resource for anyone who happens to come across it.

 

The easiest way to navigate this site is by following the links toward the bottom of this page.

Links with asterisks are a good place to start if you are a beginner seed saver. 

 

Who We Are

The Upper Valley Seed Savers is a group of gardeners and farmers who meet monthly in an effort to increase our seed saving knowledge and create a local collection of seeds that would support a year-round food supply. We have varying degrees of seed saving and gardening experience. Some of us have large gardens where we grow much of our own food, some of us have small gardens where we grow whatever we can fit. Some have farms or businesses related to growing vegetables and seeds.

We do not have a central location where we keep our seeds. Each person is responsible for storing the seeds they grow. We have a yearly seed swap in December. This wiki represents an effort to keep track of the seeds we grow, of seed projects we are involved in, and to be a resource for the group and any others who are lucky enough to find us.

 

Mission Statement

The mission of the Upper Valley Seed Savers is to save seed of open-pollinated vegetable and herb varieties that have regional history, exceptional flavor, good storage capabilities, particular beauty, or are in danger of becoming unavailable commercially, and that contribute to a locally-grown, year-round food supply.

 

Goals/Vision

1. To develop our knowledge of seed saving

2. To identify and preserve open-pollinated varieties that thrive in our area

3. To build a collection of locally grown seeds that extend the season and help feed us year-round

4. To create a community-based seed saving network that could enhance our own community and could serve as a model for other communities

 

Monthly Meetings

Winter: Until further notice, winter meetings will be via Zoom on the second Thursday of each month at 5:30.

Summer: 5:00 PM on 2nd Thursday of each month at members' gardens. Locations are decided at the beginning of the season. 

 

We welcome new members to our meetings.  Contact us. 

 

 

Next UVSS meeting: June 9, 2022 at 5:30

We will be meeting at the gardens of Sylvia Davatz in Hartland.

Prepare to be outside the whole time and BYOF&B (bring your own food & beverage).
