I am looking for a forum that has a Seed Bank like this forum. Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations?

As far as we know, there is no other group with a seed bank anywhere in the US that is free to join with free seeds. The closest one is the above referenced organization, but there's an annual membership fee and you pay for the seeds
Plus, not to brag, but the last time I saw their seed bank inventory, it was about 50% of ours.

I don't think there was even that much. I myself am very happy to have found this forum. Not only for the help I receive, but the free seeds are an added bonus.

Yeah unfortunately their seedbank had been neglected for many years, causing donations to drop off dramatically as donators never saw their seeds listed. The new seedbank manager is a good friend of mine and he's far better at keeping on top of things, but it's going to be a long road to building it back up to where it used to be.

I was lucky to find this forum from someone’s comment on Facebook when I was looking for some drosera seeds.

I have opened this website. Is it worth subscribing to it?
I have been told by others that it is more a personal preference. I found their seed bank to be very limited compared to the one here. It might be worth the $10.00 for the first year just to check it out. If you do, chime in here and let us know how it goes.
