Seed Donation Request

Post by Farhan Ahmed » July 5th, 2013, 1:41 pm

Guys we started our bank with some seeds that were available with us and got some seed donation as well.
As i estimates, seeing the seed requests coming that gradually the health of our Bank is depleting, whereas we want to grow & grow :-)....we expect that asking members will return seeds but after harvesting which is far from now.

Meanwhile Tahir Sb can formally comment on the health of Seed Bank. Insha Allah after Spring 2014, we will have some very good varieties in good number.

Therefore i formally request for "Seed Donations" from members. Please be advised this is not a monetary donation but seeds. Neither its in the form of seed packets commercially available........Whatever is there in your garden( a drying flower) or in your closets lying waste. Please donate that to the bank....This will help us distribute these to asking members.

Looking Forward

Thank you for the generous offer Sir, but please no F-1 hybrid seeds should be collected as they don't come true.
