After many months of working on the steering committee for GSN, I am glad that we are getting started. This is a low budget operation which is coming together slowly. I think we have a good group of members who have already joined. I hope all of you will stick with us as we smooth out some of the rough spots that have shown up during our start up. GSN has been set up to run in a participatory democratic manner. I see this as a member based organization where we all work together to support each other in our seed saving efforts.
