Payment can also be made via bank transfer (the additional charge of £1.20 for individual order packaging still applies). Please send Maren an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have chosen this form of payment.
Maren consolidates all orders received and applies the discounts. When the total consolidated order value is more than the minimum value of £50, she will send them off to Kings.
The Seed Scheme requires that all ordered items (except fruit and plants) are shipped to a single central address, from which the individual orders will be distributed. Peter England is currently the central recipient of Kings/NSALG orders. He will notify members on receipt of a shipment and agree a convenient time for members to pick up their items.
