Southern Exposure Seed Exchange has partnered with The Transition in order to help new intentional communities get off the ground with growing their own food. If you are on Phase 4 of Your Action Plan you are eligible to request an IC-Warming Seed Package that will be a starter kit of seeds to grow for your new community. SESE has asked that you provide the following information when you send in your request:
- You inform them The Transition referred you.
- Specify what crop types you are interested in (i.e. easy to grow, stuff kids would like to snack on etc.)
Tell them a little about your intentional community's Mission and regular activities.
- Give them an up-to-date address to send the seeds and their latest catalog to.
To request your packet e-mail them at email@example.com and provide the information outlined above in your e-mail. If you have any problems submitting this request please contact your Point Person for assistance.
Take Note: Offer is only one package per new budding community. Have the Seed Person of your BUD submit the package request.
