MEMBERSHIP FEES

Good News!
The Seed Savers Albury Wodonga have decided to reduce the membership fee from July 1st 2022.

Annual membership is now $10 per household (Tip: So be sure to list all household members)

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

For those who joined between 1 January and 30 June 2022 and therefore paid $20, you will have membership until June 2023.

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.
