The Heirlom Seed GROUP has some comments about seed exchanges. My comment was as follows...
My thoughts on how to trade seeds without sending them through the mail:
Any physical gathering, whereas AP seed exchangers (us), are expected to be present, request of the gathering organizer the opportunity to set aside a time for such exchanges, (perhaps include in the event syllabus a slot for such exchanges). I think it would be great to provide that opportunity at the AP convention, or when some of our commercial AP's hold training and other such events.
This web site provides the ability to list AP events. As the AP Association gels and branches are formed, hopefully more regional or localized branches will be created, thereby bringing APers closer together, which in turn should help us all in the seed exchange endeavor.
Just some thoughts.
