2018-2019 Seed Exchange
The Seed Exchange is currently closed but the next seed exchange will start when the donor forms are sent out with the June Journal. Seed Reception will take place until October 2018 and Seed Distribution will start in November 2018.
The AGS Seed Exchange takes place every year. Around 5000 varieties of seed are donated by members during August, September and October. These are catalogued and then packeted by volunteers to make up over 100,000 packets. The seed list is printed and will be posted to all members at the end of November. Members can then order seed from the list. The seed orders from donors are picked first and we aim to post out most of these before Christmas. The seed orders from non-donors are then picked and sent out in January. When all the main orders are completed, we pick and send out orders for surplus seed.
The seed list will this year go live on the website on the 25th November 2017. On line ordering is now firmly established and is the recommended way to order your seed. The internet system gives access to pictures of the plants, which has proved a very popular feature.
The online system saves a lot of time for the volunteers and the staff at Pershore, so we request you to use this system if at all possible. If you wish to use the online ordering system, you do not need to wait until you receive your posted copy.
If you do not have internet access, please don’t worry as your order will be given the same priority as we allow time for post to reach all areas of the world before we start making up orders and priority is always given to donors, as without them, there would be no Seed Exchange.
