I live in Charlottesville, Virginia, and I want to help folks get all-natural plants back into their lives by way of gardening. Thus, seedlin.gs, a free, online site dedicated to swapping packets of all-natural seeds. Seedlin.gs will allow the open trade of seeds which are at least one of the following: certified organic, non-GMO, heirloom, open-pollinated, or wild-cultivated. Seedlin.gs will be free for everyone. No money is involved. It's like a book swap site, but for packets of all-natural seeds.
Seeds are important. They help us grow food. They allow us to carry on family traditions. They let us become caregivers for living things which reward us with nutrition, flavor, beauty, and fresh air. Within a seed one will find not only a tiny plant germ, but also our own hopes for a connection with nature. We want the users of seedlin.gs to take charge of sharing their own experiences with seeds.
"My grandfather was a farmer in south Texas. He grew many vegetables that were influential to my upbringing, and I wish I had the forethought to save the seeds from his crops. I'd love to plant some red-skin potatoes, or some pinto green beans, or some crowder peas directly from the ones he grew for decades. This would be a way to continue my family through gardening." - Cris, founder of seedlin.gs
What We Need & What You Get
We are seeking 1850 dollars to develop seedlin.gs. Half of that will go to development of the design and mechanics for the website. A quarter of the funds raised will be dedicated to hosting the site initially. The last quarter will be used for promoting the site across the United States (for now).
