Bringing your seeds in the shell pods. or on the stems, or inside the fruit (ie. hand-fertilized & protected winter squash), is fine! We can work & share together Sunday. Finger foods welcomed.
Recycled envelopes & bags to share needed.

Sounds great Rob, bring the bags and we will hear the story.
We did some basic set up yesterday. A bit more right before the event would be great, say 12-1 to set up some more tables and awnings if needed.

I live just down the street and might be able to help with set up or take down- I have some child care things to juggle this weekend. I also have an abundance of paper wine bags (there's a story behind this) that work nicely if they are cut short... I will bring them to share.

Spruce & Brian & All attending, I'll be there around 2pm Friday to work with you on set up...will bring Don to help too...Let me know if there is anything specific you have a request on us to bring that we may have out here....I hope to see more folks join us Friday or early Sunday!

I may bring some of my diverse seed stash on Friday in case their is time & desire secure some to start in spring greenhouse and then grow plants for more seeds...I have some great sweet tomotilas (sp?)-ground-husk-cherrys.
Also my Lopez seed-saving friend mailed me some hulless-pumkin seeds that they grow specifically for drying the edible pumkins seeds that don't need hulling! Any experienced squash seed-savers can put in a special request for me to share....I plan to offer some to Uprising...I only have 15 seeds and they are not easy seeds to obtain!

Brian & Bruce - Do you want to post what road to have folks park on after they unload their seeds & swap items?
