Seed Saving Library Project
Here in Colorado we have been blessed by the existence and enthusiasm of Penn Parmenter. Partnered with her husband Cord, she is inspiring people not only in Colorado but around the world to embrace their inner farmer no matter what the barriers may be. Do you live in the mountains? No problem. She'll teach you to grow at high altitude. Do you want to grow food year round but don't want to buy an expensive or inefficient greenhouse off the rack? No problem. They can share how they built their passive solar, recycled/found objects greenhouses. Are you concerned with where your food comes from and whether you know the truth about its genetics or any potential chemical intrusion? No problem. We'll just save clean, healthy, diverse seed ourselves!
Inspired by Penn's passion (really, Penn, you should name a seed after yourself!) - and a miscalculation of starts - we gave away more than 300 amazing tomato plants with the request that you help us start a seed saving library. If you took one of these wonderful heirlooms all we ask is you save some of the seed and return some of it to us. We'll organize a seed library to make the seeds available to you and others next year and in future. Below you will find a list of available tomato plants and a chart for quick reference.
