Hi Finney Farm Folks! You are welcome join our local "Earth Gardens" network- (You'll need to sign on to the Transition site and click the 'Join' button.) Many of us also share news & events through Shannon's Garden E-News.

I'm one of the co-creators of the local "Seed-Swap: Into The Hands of the People" that we've had in the winter for the last 3 yrs. This winter, at least 2 more swaps were created & held, with more folks sharing their herloom seeds year round. You're welcome to network with us at- "Seed-Savers: Preserving Our Ecological Heritage"-
You're welcome to join any of the online Transition groups, or to start your own blog or group. (There are other citizens from Skagit here)
