Seed can only be ordered through the checkout on this website. Please do not try to order through The Secretary or by directly contacting a member of the Executive or Seed Savers team.
This offer to mail seed is only available to current financial members of Permaculture Sydney West (PSW).
For those who joined or re-joined PSW after 30 June 2021, there is a limit of 20 packets of seeds (you may not order seed labelled 'rare') plus a three-month wait before the next order can be placed. This does not apply to returning members: those who renewed after 30 June 2021.
Some seed is in short supply, so this system is operated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
The basic cost for shipping and handling is $5.00 for standard letter mail. How long this takes to reach you after it is posted is in the hands of Australia Post.
Express Post is $10 and should reach you on a Tuesday or Wednesday.
If your order is too big to fit in the envelope we use, you will be contacted and asked to pay further shipping costs.
Your order is not packed until full payment, including shipping and handling, is made. All seeds ae posted on Mondays only.
You can arrange contactless pick up of your order from Emu Heights (where the seed is stored) rather than wait for it to come through the mail. The handling cost is $5.00.
The only way that your seed bank can continue to make locally grown seed available to you, is if members donate seed to the bank each season. Therefore, it is understood that you will grow some of your crops to maturity and return seed to your PSW seed bank. Someone from PSW Seed Savers may contact you regarding seed if you have chosen a variety that is short supply.
