Spring Seed Swap
September 27th Saturday
From 1pm -3pm
AT THE USUAL VENUE- 7 Oaks School
Bring along seeds to swap as well as tubers,bulbs, cuttings etc.
The deal is if you bring material to add to the table entry is free otherwise we ask you make a gold coin donation.
Of course feel free to make any donations as all gratefully received.
This is a great opportunity to come along and exchange ideas as well as seeds and to meet other like minded folk in our community
Also a very good time to pay your subs as they are due as at the end of August unless of course you have already done so.
We have timed our AGM for an hour before the seed swap begins so please feel free to attend this prior to the swapping.
AGM begins at high noon! 12pm.
I will be sending out an agenda in the next week or so but I need to let you all know this information in advance so here it is.
In previous years we have used the Spring Seed Swap as a way to distribute orders to you and save on postage so I am proposing we try this again. Of course I will be calling on volunteers to help pack seed if I get inundated with orders and if we get snowed under we may not get all orders filled on time but lets give it a go.You would need to have your orders in to me by the 20th September to give me time to process and get helpers to pack the seed up and have it ready for distribution on the day.
I have attached a copy of the seedlist also as although I did email it to you all earlier in the year many folk say they have lost the email so here it is again. At the Seed Swap there will be hard copies of the Seed List available at the cost of $2 as we seriously need to recoup the cost of printing them and as you know we are financially stretched at present.(An order form is also attached. When you fill it in make sure you write the # number of the seed line and what it is i.e #506 Waimana -tomato...... it makes my job way easier)
Apologies for not having the newsletter ready to send to you all at this time but I believe Martin is still working on it at this stage.
Ok so get your diaries out and mark in September 27th, 2014
1-3pm for the Swap
or come an hour early and join the AGM.
