2020/2021 HPS/MAG Seed Exchange

The Online Seed Shop is Open

If you have not mailed your promised seed donations, please do so in a timely manner. Send them to Carole Maher, 774 Church Rd., Elkins Park, PA 19027 by January 8th, 2021.

The online seed shop is open (www.hardyplantseedshop.org) and ready to take your seed orders. The username and password is the same as the login to the HPS website. Information on ordering can be found at the online seed shop. Remember that seed donors and seed workshop volunteers can order 10 bonus seed packets. A pdf of the 2020/2021 Seed Exchange catalog is available here and at the online seed shop. Order early to receive your first choices. The online seed shop will be open until January 21st, 2021. On the online seed shop, payment can be made by credit card or by check mailed to Mary Ann Thomas (see address below).

The 2020/2021 Seed Exchange catalog will be mailed to those requesting a print catalog and seed donors. The print catalog may take until early January to be delivered to your mailboxes due to an overwhelmed Postal Service this holiday season. Please be patient. Mail-in orders are due by January 19th, 2021 and should be mailed to Mary Ann Thomas, 8600 Elliston Drive, Wyndmoor, PA 19038.

The Seed Exchange has a new home for our cleaning, sorting, and packaging workshops - Tyler Arboretum's Terrace Room (back side of the Barn).  We will begin our workshops Tuesday, January 26th with 6 volunteers each day.  Time of workshops will be from 10 AM to 3 PM Tuesday through Thursday, until we are finished. This year these workshops will continue longer because of the daily reduction of volunteers and hopefully will be done by the end of February.  Face masks will be required inside our larger room. 

Everyone needs to sign-up with Polly Garnett ([email protected]) to volunteer at these Seed exchange workshops. Drop ins will not be allowed this year because of Covid.  We are trying to make everything safe for our volunteers at this annual event, so please follow our rules.
