Plant Materials Center annual seed sale begins April 19

Home and GardenThe Plant Materials Center (PMC) will begin its annual sale of grass, grains and flower (forb) seeds on April 19 and continue selling seed through the end of the growing season. This sale is the annual opportunity for commercial seed growers to purchase foundation-level seed from the PMC, enabling growers to produce and sell certified seed to farmers, landscape companies, revegetation contractors, and construction companies.

A list of available species and their quantities will be posted to the PMC website (http://plants.alaska.gov/) on April 19. Those interested in purchasing seed may place orders by contacting Pete Johnson at the PMC at 745-8105 or peter.johnson@alaska.gov, or by faxing a seed order to 745-1568.

The PMC produces foundation-level seed for commercial seed growers and encourages all others seeking seed suitable for Alaska’s growing conditions to purchase from local retailers and distributors targeting the consumer market.

The PMC will make every effort to fill desired seed orders, bearing in mind available amounts and numbers of parties interested. Sales will continue through the growing season on a first come first serve basis. After purchase, seed can be picked at the Plant Materials Center, located at 5310 S. Bodenburg Spur in the Butte area of Palmer.

This sounds like a great small/local business idea. Form a co-op, buy seed, and sell it at a profit.
