Seed Bank

There is a volunteer opportunity at a Seed Bank located in Hope, IN.  Jim Kelly is the coordinator and can be reached at jamesdkelly8910@gmail.com  Donations of seeds, money, supplies and time are needed.  Volunteers can purchase their own seeds, or receive seeds from the Seed Bank, grow a crop, and then return seeds to the Seed Bank at the end of the harvest. The idea behind the Seed Bank is to teach food production as it was done in the past.
