Not to mention all the other threads with people discussing specific plants they are looking for and so on.
Might be a good place for you to put this post

I wouldn't necessarily need enough seed to fill the orchard, obviously, just enough to get maybe 10 or 15 sprouted. I have a huge variety of tomato and pepper seeds, and, well, I have a 2.5 gallon zip-lock bag full of seed packets. Chances are, I'll have some type of seed you would use. Also, I would take honey locust seeds... Well, pretty much seeds of any beneficial perennial for a food forest/orchard. The more varied, the better. Thanks!
