  • MBC/FNGLA SeedBank Article
    the FNGLA to support a seedbank program In August a proposal was submitted to the Chapter s Directors stating the following objectives Promote the conservation of rare and endangered palms and cycads by supporting seed production and seed distribution from Montgomery s collections Create the opportunity in South Florida for growing and testing species not yet known in the horticultural industry Create opportunities for identifying successful plants for the future South Florida landscaping industry Promote scientific and educational opportunities on the plants produced from the distribution of the seed An essential part of the MBC proposal was the hiring of a part time seedbank coordinator to oversee the collecting cleaning and distribution of seed to FNGLA and to other botanically oriented societies gardens and institutions John discussed the proposal with Murray Corman of Garden of Delights to see if he might be interested in supporting such a program Since the mid 1970s Murray had been trying to figure out ways to increase the diversity of species available to the South Florida Nursery Industry The MBC proposal was exactly what Murray had hoped for Murray immediately signed on with John as a strong supporter of the program and became one of the first members of the new FNGLA Seed Bank Committee Many months were spent developing a Memorandum of Understanding MOU between FNGLA and MBC Since so many individuals were involved in one or more aspects of the agreement many drafts were generated Members of FNGLA were canvassed to see if they would be interested in purchasing shares in the program the higher dollar amount a share holder gave to the program the larger number of seeds they would obtain On March 25 1998 the MOU between MBC and FNGLA was officially signed The main purpose of the agreement was that the two organizations would create and administer a seedbank program with the objectives stated above The program began on April 1 1998 Thirteen individuals purchased shares in the program to fund the first year These individuals ultimately became the MBC FNGLA Seedbank Committee The MOU stated that FNGLA would receive 60 of the seeds generated through the program Twenty percent of the FNGLA seeds would be sold to FNGLA members during the monthly meetings the funds from the sale would be split equally between FNGLA and MBC Eighty percent of FNGLA s seeds would be distributed to the Seed Bank Share Holders based on the number of shares they held in the program In April 1998 Judy Kay a volunteer at MBC already involved with controlled pollinations and seed distributions was hired as the part time Seed Bank Coordinator through the MBC FNGLA Seedbank Program MBC renovated a small building to house the office of the Coordinator and to provide a site for processing storing and distributing seeds Murray Corman agreed to support the Program by working with Judy Kay once very two weeks With a priority listing of species wanted by FNGLA Judy and Murray spent every other Friday
