Last week, after reaching out to Executive Director John Torgrimson of Seed Savers Exchange, one of the nation’s best and largest sources of heirloom and open-pollinated seed varieties, he decided to write a letter to members of the Illinois legislature urging them to protect seed sharing rights in Illinois by supporting SB3130.
We thought the letter so perfectly and succinctly captured the importance of saving and sharing seeds that it needed to be shared, and John has kindly agreed to allow us to publish it here. Please read, share, and urge your senator to support SB3130 as well. You can do so easily by filling out this quick 2-minute form that will send an email straight to your senator!
