Subject: Seed TEAM Support - Progress Report Date: Tue, 28 Mar 2000 12:57:36 -0600 From: Nancy Lieder <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Due to generous donations at the start of the year, a Troy Bilt tiller was purchased to help plant more acreage for seed collection. A loan of an acre or more of prime garden space was given by a local neighbor. This land needs to be tilled after some rest, so tilling is expected to be an effort but achievable this spring. During Roger's muti-project working visit this past week, he toured this spot as well as the family garden area at the headquarters site (my home). Several hours were spent in total planning what to plant in the various garden spots, not only to facilitate seed collection but also to demonstrate at the headquarters site the proper use of land for food. Buckwheat and Amaranth will be planted at the site, clover as a ground cover, and dozens of perennial herbs as this is a stable site which can be presumed to deliver seed over the next couple years. Roger brought seed with him, and several evenings were spent going over all the seed collected last fall here, sorting and packaging and the like. Many thanks to Roger for his consulting and assistance!
