The Seed Savers Exchange, 3094 North Winn Road, Decorah, IA 52101; network is a membership organization with an annual membership fee and three annual membership publications of mostly small-scale growers and gardeners dedicated to preserving our heritage of open-pollinated heirloom vegetables, fruits, and nuts. Seed Savers Yearbook (mailed each February), makes available (only to SSE's members) the seeds of more than 11,000 rare varieties of vegetables, fruits and grains. In other words, each year - SSE's members offer nearly twice as many vegetable varieties as are available from all of the mail-order seed catalogs in both the U.S. and Canada. The network's underlying purpose is to protect the genetic diversity of our food crops. The SSE's yearbook, published each January, lists varieties that have been saved...then members exchange and grow each other's seeds. Three other valuable references works produced by SSE are Garden Seed Inventory (a complete list of all commercially available non-hybrid vegetable seeds); Fruit, Berry, and Nut Inventory; and Seed to Seed (detailing seed-saving techniques for the vegetable gardener).

-The Flower and Herb Exchange - the Flower and Herb Exchange (FHE), founded in 1989, is patterned after SSE but is a separate organization. FHE issues one publication each year mailed in March to more than 1,700 members. The 88-page 2004 Flower and Herb Exchange Yearbook contained the addresses of 200 members who were offering nearly 2,000 of old-time flowers and herbs. FHE is re-creating the garden landscapes of the past by reintroducing plants that once bloomed in our grandparents' gardens and yards. Thanks to FHE's members, flowers and herbs that were rare are becoming abundant once again.
