The Hudson Valley Seed Library exists to create an accessible and affordable source of locally-adapted seeds that is maintained by a community of caring gardeners. After four years of developing the Seed Library concept, we are ready to blossom--from selling seeds that are grown in distant soils to cultivating a regional seed production network in New York State. In 2009, we will be offering over twenty varieties of locally grown seed, and most of our varieties will be rooted in the history and soils of New York. Every year we plan on growing additional varieties on the Seed Library farm and contracting with organic and certified naturally grown farmers in the Hudson Valley to grow even more varieties. By 2014, we aim to be 100% New York grown. Thank you for supporting our efforts to revive the local seed trade. With your help, we can save heirloom seeds and their stories.
