My wife and I have a small seed bank of vegetable varieties brought from Germany in the mid-1800s. You can learn more about it here: http://cubits.org/gardenphotos/articles/view/730/. Scroll down to the Links section and click on the seed bank link.

I am somewhat connected with Decorah Seed Savers in that they now have seeds of all the vegetables we have in our seed bank. They have very sophisticated equipment to keep seeds viable, and my wife and I won't be on this earth forever, so this is a good way to keep the varieties from disappearing.

As a gardener: When planning for a year, I plant corn. When planning for decades, I plant trees. When planning for life, I train and educate people.
