At this stage of the development of the Nelson Seed Library we have several aspects that we are working on. Finding a home for our seed library is at the top of the list. We are fortunate to be able to confirm that we have been offered a space in the new building of the Tahunanui Community Center which should become available in July/August. We also had an email from the Nelson Libraries which may lead to us having a space in the public library as well.
Now that we have a home we need to decide on the logistics of storing and distributing the seed and other aspects of running a seed library. We are trying to source some storage containers for the seed and some furniture to store those in (shelf/cupboard/drawers/roll top desk/other). We need to network to some reliable gardeners who can help steward seed varieties and we are still seeking donations of seed. Another thing we are considering is running a crowdfunding campaign and applying for some grants to raise a small amount of capital to assist with the setup and initial running costs of the seed library.
