Here's what I posted in June over in the donations thread (edited here for brevity):

Jocelyn Campbell wrote:If you're interested in sending things, the mailing address is:
2120 S Reserve ST #351
Missoula MT 59801

It's a private mailbox at a mail center kind of place - the same address that shows on the bottom of the daily-ish e-mail. If you're a Missoulian, I think you could even drop things off for box #351 if that's easier.

Thanks folks for all the great ideas and offers to help.


I'm not sure how many hugels we will start this first year, and some of our soil has yet to be improved, and we're ordering a lot of seeds and plants ourselves, so I'm not sure how to answer if we might need more. We'll try to post more cohesive info as we are able.



tell you what, i will send some walking onions, and a few other things from the op, probably basic "weedy" type stuff, like for edible landscaping....lemon balm, maybe some sorrel....if that sounds good.

The "most wanted" list is a good idea.

I have the same policy of planting whenever I disturb the soil. I carry a basket with tools, gloves and a variety of veg seeds clover seeds and garlic cloves in it around as I go. I fancy myself becoming a cross between Sepp Holzer (planting many different seeds everywhere) and Ruth Stout (relaxed attitude of bounty, charming basket)

Having a store of various seeds for gardeners to strew as they work is nice.

I know that this post has been around for awhile, but...is there a current seed savers group in the area?

Thanks
