Just read an interesting article on Etsy about The Seed Savers Exchange. I'd never heard of this amazing organziation before and look forward to purchasing a few seed packs next spring. They promote education, seed preservation and community spirit.

Their catalog is gor-gee-ous and makes for a mouth watering page turner. Check them out, become a member and donate to the cause if you can!
