Saturday 10th October
AGM 11 to 11.30am
Seed Bank Opening 11.30am to 1pm
Brown’s Lagoon, Olive Street, South Albury
After that lovely rain and as the temperatures warm up again, our thoughts will be turning to planting our summer crops. And, just in time, SSAW is giving you the opportunity to access the seed bank!
We will have our AGM at 11am on Saturday 10th October, followed by the opening of the seed bank from 11.30am until 1pm. We will be holding these events in the covered picnic area at Brown’s Lagoon, Olive Street, South Albury.
Please consider attending the AGM. It is always short but it is a great opportunity to meet members of the Committee and show your support. You must be a member to vote.
You can view a list of the seeds currently in stock on our website but there should be more available on the day as members add new seed.
We hope that many of you will bring seed, cleaned or uncleaned, that you have saved from crops earlier in the year to deposit in the seed bank. Cleaning equipment will not be available due to COVID risk but you can deposit uncleaned seed to be cleaned by Committee members at a later date.
In order to follow COVID guidelines, we have to implement some extra procedures to keep everyone as safe as possible:
- Those who intend to attend the event should pre-register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with their name, email address and phone number. This will give us the compulsory list of attendees which can be checked off at the event and therefore reducing contact with other people and sharing of pens etc.
- Those who wish to deposit seed, should, wherever possible, print and fill in a seed deposit sheet from our website prior to the event. This should be handed in on the day for a Committee member to collate.
- Similarly, those withdrawing seed need only to fill in the withdrawal sheet which will be available on the day. Members’ credits and debits will be added to their cards by Committee members at a later date.
- Hand sanitiser and wipes will be provided and must be used on registering and after handling seed packets, measurers, etc
- Safe distancing should be practised at all times. If the area becomes crowded, Committee members will control the flow of people.
- Masks are recommended in crowded situations.
Members who live in the Victorian bubble will need a Border Pass.
Membership is now due. Don’t forget to renew your membership online at our website.
Hope to see you soon.
