Being a member of Seed Savers Albury-Wodonga provides the opportunity to network with locals interested in growing backyard food and saving seed.

Being a member gives you access to:

  • Gatherings such as –
    • Workshops on seed saving techniques, planning, propagation, species specific information
    • Social events – end of year and August AGM (and every gathering!)
    • Guest speakers on food growing and seed saving-related topics
    • Seed cleaning and packaging sessions
    • Bulk seed bank – members can withdraw from and add to our collection of locally saved seed
  • Seed cleaning equipment (and seed cleaning days as mentioned above); a resource library; seed lists and data sheets for our seed
  • Venue and opportunity to meet others with similar interests – share in the wealth of knowledge and experience of our members and guests
  • Special visits to other gardens
  • Regular news updates
  • Custodianship of the next generations of food plants
  • Insurance cover for activities
  • A ‘trade table’ for the sharing of surplus seedlings, cuttings or produce.

MEMBERSHIP FEES
Membership is $20 per household (Tip: So be sure to list all household members)

Memberships are paid annually as a financial year subscription (July to June).

We offer an early bird discount of $5 off memberships paid at the AGM and throughout the months of July and August.

And a late-comers arrangement for those joining between 1 March and 30 June each year, where $20 gains you membership for the end of the current year and all the next financial year.

You can join by completing our online membership form and making a payment either  at one of our gatherings or by electronic transfer (details on the form).

OTHER OPTIONS
You don’t have to be a member to participate in our events.

Non-members attending our gatherings are asked to make a $4 donation towards insurance costs, and should be prepared to pay for any seed taken from the bulk seed bank.

Non-members can also elect to receive email reminders of our upcoming events.
