There are many reasons to save seeds in 2018! Becoming more self reliant and growing your own food is reason number one. How about sharing your bounty with the neighborhood (reason #2). Maybe saving money on seeds and improving your diet (reason #3). Whatever your reason, join us at MariLark and be a part of the Community Seed Bank! Stay tuned for the launch in the spring of 2018.

Safe Seed Pledge
Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, we pledge that we do not knowingly buy, sell or trade genetically engineered seeds or plants. We pledge to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.
Gardens are not made by singing ‘Oh, how beautiful,’ and sitting in the shade.
– Rudyard Kipling
