Donations this year will be especially appreciated.
Breeding open source or public domain, open-pollinated vegetables is more of a public service than an economic activity. Fertile Valley Seeds has grown to an impossible size. It is too large for me to handle without hiring serious help. But it's too small for me to hire help and still make a profit. In order to survive, the company needs to be bigger. I need a full time employee during the seed processing and ordering season as well part time assistance during the growing season. It is also time for FVS to graduate to an e-commerce enabled website. Do you like the work I've been doing? Can you help? If so, please send your donation to Carol Deppe, 7263 NW Valley View Dr., Corvallis OR 97330. (Or send your donation along with your order.)
