Salt Spring Seed Sanctuary,
Radicle Seed Bank:
Since the early days of the ROOT, we have partnered with Salt Spring Seed Sanctuary Society to construct a seed bank room in the original building on site. This is located in what we fondly call the Barn, and is a temperature controlled room perfect for storing seeds. The Sanctuary Society manages this collection and stores seeds available to the community. As the ROOT site goes into food production, seeds from this collection will become a vital part of that production, from using them to plant, to saving and storing new seeds. The vision is that this Seed Bank will be filled with bulk seeds as the years build the supply with seed stewardship and volume plantings.
Please contact Sheila at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the Seed Bank, the seeds and seed stewardship opportunities. This collection is part of the SSI Seedy Saturday each year.
