I run the St. Isidore farming society in Denver, and am also starting to from a decentralized intentional community in the area. We hope to fund our many projects by selling seedlings next year. However, we want to make sure there is a market before starting. So does anybody want to sign up? No money would change hands until the seedling were ready to go, in case we have a crop failure, but it would help if people ordered them now. Types and price are negotiable. We can do standard tomatoes, peppers, etc. as well as more unusual permie plants.

Last year I raised five hundred tomato plants and hundreds of other types for the farm, and ended up with more tomatoes then we could eat. So we do know how to do it.

Please PM me if you are interested in more details.

Denver is too far for me to be transporting plants, but one thing that I always wished that the local nurseries would do is custom transplants: My seeds, but their materials and labor to grow them to transplant stage and harden them off. And have them at the right age on my traditional plant-out day. I'd even pay double for that service as compared to buying generic commercially available hybrids from the same nursery...

That is sort of what we are hoping to do. Customers will be able to pick from our list, specify something and pay extra, or donate a pack of seed and get the seedlings for the same, standard price; and we keep the extra seed.
