The major, long term seedsaving organisation in New Zealand, Koanga Institute, needs help! They need to purchase the neighbouring farm to protect the seed and fruit collection from contamination. Maybe this fine community of people would be prepared to support their indigogo campaign. I'm not directly involved and will gain no personal benefit beyond being able to continue purchasing their seeds etc.

Here's the link to the indiegogo campaign:-

Note geoff lawton's comments near the bottom of the page.

And here's the link to their website:-

From what I understand it's way worse than that:
Their massive heritage tree and seed plant collection is on leased land, which is up for sale
and if they can't raise the money by the 6th of June, they and the collection will be evicted.

This is a major resource to all of us involved in permaculture, no matter where we live - we can all do a small thing to effect massive change.

Donated!

The government thinks you are too stupid to make your own lightbulb choices. But this tiny ad thinks you are smart:
