What role might you play in the exciting world of seed saving? In his article "Vaults, Banks, Guilds and More – Many Ways to Save Seeds" in the summer issue of The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener, Will Bonsall writes that if you do no more than save your own seed, you will have done very well. You'll be far more efficient if you have a dedicated seed freezer so that you don't have to save seed of everything every year.

You can join a seed exchange to gain access to greater diversity while sharing with others, or you might start a guild or smaller seed-saving community of your own. Will shares plenty of tips in his article.
