We are putting out calls on NextDoor and to other groups asking people to grow out seeds for next year. We're asking if people are already growing things that they can let go to seed as well as if they are willing to volunteer to grow out things to seed
where we provide the seed. We have a planting times guide (that a propagator for a local nursery helped us fill in) and I added some columns (in yellow) about when to plant for seed saving, when to expect a harvest, and comments. These dates are specific to
the San Francisco Bay Area in California and will not necessarily be your dates. So see if you can find some experienced seed savers in your area to help you fill in the dates. Big shout out to
Steve Peters of Organic Seed Alliance and Seed Revolution Now who is based in our area for giving us this information! Once again, you'll need to find people in your bioregion that can give you your dates.
