    I want to connect to some other school gardens that would be interested in a seed swap next winter. Our school wants to grow out a rare bean and share seed and I thought doing a seed exchange among other schools would be a great way to share seed and ideas. It would be nice to connect to gardens across the US. I need to gauge how many would like to participate so I can get a feeling for how this might work. Let me know if your school/homeschool garden would be interested in this.

    I hope everyone can see this.  I have about 11 schools interested but I'm missing a bunch of email addresses so I cannot contact those intersted outside of this forum.  I'd like to start disucssing specifics as the growing season has started for some and is about to start for others.  If you can email me at or respond to this message with your email address I'd greatly appreciate it.
