    What a nice gesture Zaz!

    Would it perhaps need a few guidelines on the 'value' of different seeds? For instance, I wouldn't think it fair to ask for something rare, or that someone has cossetted and bred themsleves and then just offer a cheapo unbranded packet of carrots in return.

    Sounds like a good idea (and lots of work for you as others have already said!) I'd be happy to contribute a few packs too

    The Seed Library.

    Hi - yes I think it's a brilliant idea (but like others have said already - it's a lot of work for you though!).

    It's especially good that even peeps who haven't any seeds to swap will be able to join in and will be helping a charity as well.

    It's a brilliant idea zazen. As Nicos said, you're a star.

    I'm sure I have some to donate too - I need a good sort out.

    Will it be ran via the forum? I can do a simple website if you like so you could have a simple stock system, count/in/out yada yada.

    Brilliant idea though, be great just to try things out before going whole hog if they're liked.

    I was thinking of just google docs....a simple spreadsheet [not sure how much it would take to get a website up and running and all that....].
