Those other groups have one thing NAFEX lacks - a central headquarters
of their own. NAFEX has no single place to collect and sell anything.
The SSE has Heritage Farm in Decorah, IA. If NAFEX was to have a
central "farm" like that, we could do such things. But it would take a
complete structural reorganization. The rub is that it would take a lot
of money to set up. This comes up every so often, though the last time
was before the advent of the online group.

I love the ideas presented, not only higher membership, but also items
for fundraising. I would like to check with others in the business I
work for and
see about adding to the pot. I also saw a proposal to gain rights to a
and market it, and I was wondering if any of us have any worth while
discoveries/breeding results that could be gifted to such a scheme? An
would seem to epitomize Nafex would be the Milo Gibson. Other early
finds/breeding works seem highly desirable, from Meader and others. I
considering any trademarks or copyrights, but more of a nursery
An idea: maybe talk to the folks at Seed Savers Exchange, who sell the
most unique of their veggie offerings for a fundraising efforts. They
maintain a 700 variety apple orchard, all pre-1900. Other groups, such
antique rose assoc. offer stock in their catalog. Maybe we could offer
heirloom or unique selections in the same manner and reap the small
would be happy to graft a couple hundred of something...
Thinking out loud.
