icon During 2000

During the 2000 growing season in the northern hemisphere, seed growing in dedicated gardens began, in addition to the seed gathering from individual contributors working from their home gardens. This included an area dedicated to perennial herbs. These dedicated gardens were supported by the Troubled Times, Inc. nonprofit, and profited by donations specified for support of this project came from John Kelso and another generous anonymous gift. The results alone from this acre dedicated to seed gathering, worked by volunteer hands during the 2000 growing season, were:
