Seed Swapping

Hello, I had an idea which may or may not be a good one:
Could we set up some sort of seed swap on here? Like trading baseball cards, only with seeds. I'm not entirely sure how it would work, maybe people could list what they have to offer and make arrangements via email? I collect way more seeds than I end up using, and figured instead of buying seeds for new stuff I want, maybe people would be interested in trades.
I'm sure there are other places where people do this already, but I haven't found a local group yet and I don't have time to try and start one, so I figured I'd reach out here.

Let me know what you think...worth asking.

JJ

but that doesnt mean we couldnt start a new one, right here. =)
maybe when the thread gets long or outdated... i am not sure the people are still around or still have the seeds, errr something.

i have a lot of seeds to swap.
