I discovered another potentially useful online resource, so I thought I’d share it with you all.
Here is the website for The Seed Ambassadors Project. And here is what they say about themselves:
The Seed Ambassadors Project, based out of Oregon in the USA, is an independent, not-for-profit seed stewardship initiative. Over the winter of 2006-2007 we orchestrated an ethnobotanical exploration of nine Northern European countries to collect and distribute seed, information and friendship. We met with many of the region’s finest seed stewards and breeders: from Danish Seed Savers to the Russian Vavilov Institute, from Lithuanian government offices to ‘ancient grain’ outlaws in England. In February 2008 we went on a similar journey to Transylvania. Please read more on our blog.
I am subscribing to their blog and have joined the Google group in case there is good information to be gleaned there.
