    I missed the seed swap event at the Majestic. I have several kinds of saved seeds that are excess to my needs. I have been trying to reach someone who would be interested in some of these seeds but the Transitions Whatcom website is impossible to fathom. Sustainable Belingham”s website also wants me to sign in, somehow. I just have some seeds that I would like to get to someone who wants them, not join Scientology or whatever. Can you point me in the right direction? Please!
