I guess I could have been more clear. I previously had found and read most of the pages of those above posted links and more on Permies. I guess you would not be able to track that I did read them as most of that reading was done before I had joined. Those posts definitely are of interest to me, but they do not suit the topic that I believe has merit.
In replies to my singles post Kevin Wilson spoke to my founding of the OISB and that subject could 1) derail my singles post, 2) go on back and forth quite well as I, Kevin, and others have a lot to say and muse upon that has not to my knowledge been commented on here in Permies. I believe quite a number of others could also contribute, but if it were stuffed into a tomato breeding discussion or just left in my singles post, who would benefit?
What I am asking for is not a further discussion of breeding or saving vegetable seed-- for example, spinach or tomato seed, or how to save wheat, chestnut, or other staple crop seed-- annual or perennial, rather what are the issues in obtaining seed that is not in the open market, how much seed does one receive from an international or national seed bank and why, what happens when one brings seed in from outside of their own country, the typology of seed banks ( international, national, professional breeders, community, and personal seed banks; and seed libraries) all with different modes of operation and goals, why some community seed banks or seed libraries prosper and some do not. Why do these things matter?
Again I apologize in advance for forgetting some relevant point that I will think of as soon as there is another response or in the middle of the night.
