Nhu and others,
    Another fine seed exchange is the Alpine Garden Club of British 
Columbia.  While its offering is not as extensive as the other three major 
exchanges, it is a source of Northwest Natives not always available in the 
other exchanges.
Best wishes, Joyce Miller, Gresham Oregon, USA

Let's not forget our very own BPS BX exchange. We are close to our 300th
offering and it may reach that number by the end of the year! This means
that from the 10 years that PBS has been in existence, we have provided an
average of 30 offerings per year. As far as I know, all of this distribution
came from the amazing and tireless efforts of Dell Sherk and his helpers. I
think for a small society, we're doing very well and our BX is as healthy as
ever with new and interesting material coming in all the time.
