Where Shoul I Start? I sent $50.00 to join this in early July 06.I was interested in interviewing the author("Cultural Memory and Biodiversity) on the show that I am the producer "Dateline"USA.I received the Resource Directory 03 in Aug.I also inquirred about #374.Sea Island Cotton on their site.He said that they don't even have this and he had just forgotten to remove it from the website.Today in Oct.06 it is of course still on their site as available. I sent the PASS request the next day.Two weeks after I sent this I called to find out what the delay was.The woman who answered the phone assured me there was no problem and the seeds had been sent.A month later-No Seeds.I then emailed Jim Veteto,Coordinator who blamed it on slow mail on the west coast.he sent me another email stating that he hadn't received my request until a month after I had sent it.Which would mean that the woman who answered the phone weeks earlier was lying.
I did actually receive the seeds,Oct.06,well half of them anyway.The others well they don't have any to send out.But no mention of this on their site.I guarantee if they stated the truth on their site Nobody,including myself would ever send money to this.Whats really interesting is what they SSL screwed themselves out of by doing.National Television coverage is a Hot Ticket.Exspecially when its free!
