Is anyone interested in having a traveling seed box? You receive it, take some seeds, add some seeds, and mail it on to the next recipient?

Anyone interested in participating needs to be able to pay shipping to send the box to the next recipient, and needs to be okay with the risk that there might not be seed they like in the box.

You have a good idea- and I think you are correct in that people will get the box but not the seeds they want.
What about starting a seed exchange in this thread. People can list what they have or want.

I did some seed swap on BYC a few years ago. Found that it was far more expensive to pay shipping for seed than it was to simply purchase it locally or from my favorite seed company.

Cool idea but I am far too irresponsible . I'd forget about sending the box out until next season lol!

I love the idea but, yeah, shipping is $$$.

I'm more into the "whatcha got -- whatcha need" Truly, I am loaded with seeds! Just need weather to co-operate. Sometimes we want a hard to find thing....others may have.

A friend and I sometimes swap started plants (both local) and also share over production items. Plus, I get her figs & give her eggs. :D We have 3 limbs started to root for me. Eventually I can have them growing. :idunno She doesn't LIKE figs, but trees there when they bought house over 25 years ago. I dehydrate and scoff them up!!
