This year HPC will again be selling garden seeds from Seed Savers Exchange. SSE is located in Decorah, Iowa, and is committed to preserving agricultural diversity. All of their seeds are heirloom and/or open-pollinated varieties. Our co-op is offering over 120 varieties of SSE vegetables, flowers, and herbs.
Seed savers from around the world have donated rare seed varieties to SSE, which makes every effort to preserve and share these seeds. This year SSE is featuring ground cherry seeds donated by HPC volunteer Ann Bernstein. A limited number of these seeds will be available for purchase at the co-op.
Visitors are encouraged at SSE. Their Lillian Goldman Visitors Center is open March through December and hosts workshops and food-related events. For more information, visit their web site at http://www.seedsavers.org.
