Practicing seed savers, propagators and permies
The background to my questions relate to the financial cost of setting up a permaculture enterprise.
Scenario: A permaculture farm is set up with seeds/plantings donated by the permaculture community; generally established farms that can or have the ability to do so –with their surplus. Once established, this farm then gives back, in the same way to the permaculture community -to aid others with starting their permaculture ventures or those wishing to increase diversity.
I realise this occurs between peers, but if you had surplus seeds or plants(and the like), of any type, would you donate them to a permaculture farm that operated this way?
Is it a feasible idea in terms of permaculture adoption/start up? I ask this as I ponder the multiple reasons why permaculture is not more mainstream than it is, i mean with all its benefits. I've heard Bill Mollison talk about accessible land being the reason, but I feel it goes much deeper than that.
