"Libraries lend out books on the condition that the borrowers return them within a certain time and in the same condition. This is the reason why there are books available for lending so that other people can read them in the future. We are doing the same thing using Plantaré forms (a kind of IOU for seeds) but instead of lending books, we are lending seeds, and with the added benefit of having more possibilities for exchanges.

The idea is to share seeds, with the condition that within a certain time (1 or 2 years, for example) a similar quantity are returned after having been cultivated in similar conditions, so that the sharing can continue."
