  • 11 months ago @Marg Pearce


  • 11 months ago @Prunella Riddle

    Pretty underhanded to advertise free seeds and force registration then tell people the seeds are out of stock. Dissappointing click bait.

  • 11 months ago @Joanne Minson

    Please send seeds so I can plant for summer much appreciated

  • 11 months ago @Marg Pearce

  • 11 months ago @Seed Service

    Hi @Merg Pearce, I've just checked your profile and it seems you're registered under City of Kalamunda, and not Canning? Is it correct?

  • 10 months ago @Helen Martin

    I'd love it if the seed service was available in my local community. as we have a lot of semi-rural properties (on the fringe of Sydney) so plenty of room to grow our own food. My local Council is Hawkesbury City Council.

  • 7 months ago @Demi Quintrell

    Hello I would really like the logan city council to have this service i live in yarrabilba and its a new area we do have a community garden but im growing my own i would love to help our local yarrabilba pantry for people in need of food as well

  • 7 months ago @Kerrie Anne Melchior

    Is the Lismore NSW Council involved in this?

  • 7 months ago @Vanessa Lake

    I’m on the Northern Rivers NSW, I think it would be a valuable resource up here and encourage small gardeners to grow their own food and be a little less reliant on supermarkets.

  • 7 months ago @Joanne Ramirez
