    The idea is you find/buy/swop/beg a few seeds from something interesting, grow it yourself this year, save the seeds then you have enough to pass it on to others next year. You get the fun of trying something new yourself and then letting others have some. In return you get interesting seeds back.

    Have you anything in mind you'd like to grow?

    If you want to do a straight swopsies Zaz has some unusual seeds in her Mega Seed List...
