Win a Hudson Valley Seed Library Membership

The Hudson Valley Seed Library is hosting a photo contest and call for art, the prize is a 2011 Seed Library Membership! I blogged about the Hudson Valley Seed Library art packs on my personal garden blog earlier this year. I received the seed packs in that post after given them pictures they could use on the Hudson Valley Seed Library online catalog. To participate in the current Hudson Valley Seed Library photo contest look around their online seed catalog and if you see a seed variety that doesn't have a picture, send in one of yours of that seed variety. Follow the directions for photo your photo or art at the link above.
