The Seed Bank Manager (that's me, folks) usually takes care of filling orders on Sunday.

However if I have real life stuff happening, orders might wait an extra week.

The seed bank is a community gig, it is run by one retired, decrepit old fart.

It is not a business.

Good growing,
Mike
You're not a retired, decrepit old fart. Just a retired old fart. You still get around, so you don't count as decrepit lol.

Quick question or two Mike, does the "any donor" rule override the "active" membership rule? Also is there a time limit on the "donor" rule? I'm looking at getting some madagascareinsis seeds for a project and stupid me I gave all my extra seeds away awhile back.

Thanks as always buddy!

Donors are for life.
You may have been active elsewhere for a while, but you have given a great deal to the Forum.
You're eligible to request anything.

Thanks!

No, it has not been moved and reopened yet. We anticipated a quick transition after the existing requests had been fulfilled, but things happen. Nobody even fathomed a nationwide shutdown and stay at home order.
When it reopens, an announcement will be made, and requests can resume.
Hopefully I can make that announcement soon, but the safety and health of our members is priority. We'll wait until the current manager feels it's safe to send the seeds to me.

"Otherwise, you have 3 months active membership and 25 non giveaway posts. "
is membership free? is membership just being registered or do you have to pay to use the seedbank? also, if i want to donate extra seeds, how could i do this? (after the seed bank has opened again)
thanks! :D

To be a member you just have to have an account. The only cost for using the seedbank is for the stamps and envelope for the SASE. If you want to donate extra seeds you can contact the seedbank manager(currently ChefDean)

Yes
If I donate inventory class 1 seeds, will I have access to inventory class three?

Any donation works.
