As usual, we send out starter kits including varieties of Open Source Seeds, but this year – apart from the usual suspects Vivaroma, Sunviva and Black Heart – including brand new varieties, one called Märchenglanz and the other two so new that they will only become Open Source licensed later this year: “Märchengranat” and “Märchensnack”. Be aware that the latter varieties (all “Märchen...”) are so brandnew, that this season there are just very few seeds available and unfortunately we can only send you a sample each. On the other hand, that means you can pioneer new Open Source varieties and we encourage you to save and share some seeds at the end of the season to help other people grow these varieties next year and get them spread. We send out these seeds together with a call to share pictures and stories online, in social media or other relevant channels. For example in our new Matrix room
Please help us to spread the good news
If you have friends who missed the activity last year or if you know people around Europe that could be interested in these starter kits or you know a community garden that should participate or ... let them know! Talk to them, forward this mail and help us share the news via social media.
For this activity we send out the same starter kits from last year including seeds from Open Source Tomatoes Vivaroma, Vivagrande and Sunviva, Open Source Corn Lisanco and Open Source Chili Black Heart. We send out these seeds together with a call to share pictures and stories online, in social media or other relevant channels. For example in our new Matrix room
Welcome to the first #bouquet of the Open Source Gardens in 2022. Our bouquet is what other people used to call Newsletter. We will briefly review what happened within our movement in 2021 and glimpse on what is already planned for 2022. No worries, we keep it short and precise and hope you enjoy the read.
We have received a financial spark from Ianus Peace Lab for our Connecting Gardens Initiative. Thank you so much, this helps us to cover our costs and to run another #ConnectingGardens campaign next year.
In our first Open Source Gardeners* Unite meeting, we decided that we want to help people start growing Open Source Gardens in an easy way. Currently, in order to grow a variety of Open Source Seeds you often have to order them from each individual breeder themselves. So we decided to send out starter kits that contain several Open Source Seed varieties in one and interested gardeners* can start growing an Open Source Garden with ease.
