New Website

The Hilltown Seed Saving Network has a new website!

It’s simple and basic at this point, but we will be adding new features quickly.

Here are the minutes from the last meeting:

Hilltown Seed Saving Nework

May 3, 2012 Meeting Minutes

Attending: Sadie Stull, Kathy Harrison, Tevis Robertson-Goldberg, Michael Alterman

Next Meeting:  Wednesday, May 23rd at 6:00 pm

Animals:  We discussed various issues related to livestock breeding.  This was a good opportunity for information sharing that we would like to do more of.

Admin:  Michael now has a spreadsheet of members’ contact info on his computer.  We can use this to keep our address list updated.  Michael will have copies for people at the next meeting.

Spring Festival:  Michael printed out copies of our survey form for the festival.  However, the group felt we need more, so Michael will make more copies and deliver them to Kathy, who will get them to Tevis’s table.

Resources:  Kathy will make copies of handouts on gene pool requirements for seed saving, and indicator plants.  She will also order seed saving booklets from Johnny’s.

Meeting format:  We discussed the possibility of using future meetings to focus mostly on a particular topic of interest.  The group liked this idea.

Priorities:  Since only a couple of people in the group are actively saving seeds right now, we realized that our focus should be less on developing a seed bank or catalog, and more on helping people get started with seed saving.

Seed saving record:  Tevis updated a form for keeping records of saved seed.  We approved it.

Web presence:  Tevis will work on creating a WordPress blog for us, which will allow us to make announcements, and possibly archive documents such as meeting minutes.

Guyette farm:  Raising funds on site called Indiegogo.  Locally saved seeds are being given away as a gift to donors.

  1. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It’s simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say you have done a awesome job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Chrome. Superb Blog!
