Report on Annual General Meeting 9 November 2019

This year some valued members of our seed growers network invited us to hold our Annual General Meeting at their place, Waltham Place, near Maidenhead in Berkshire.  We leapt at the chance and everyone had a great day.  It seems very appropriate that we should hold such events around the country, and not just here in Gosberton, not least to give attention to the wider role of our growers network.

30 people attended the day which included an inspiring illustrated talk by Waltham Place Estate Manager, Andre Tranquillini, about one of his previous roles as founder of Living Seeds in Portugal, plus a tour of the farm and gardens.  A large part of the day was dedicated to meeting new faces, and old friends, and enjoying delicious food and time together.

 Seed Cooperative AGM 2019 Waltham Place

    The formal meeting included plenty of opportunities to discuss the successes and challenges of the past year, including an illustrated presentation of the 2019 Annual Report by David Price.

    Please see the following links to pdfs of documents arising from the formal meeting.

    In 2020 we will be holding two events for existing and prospective member / shareholders.

    • A Summer Members Day at Gosberton Bank Nursery on Saturday 18 July will give people the chance to tour the seed crops plus other activities
    • Our 2020 AGM will be at another member of the growers network; The Garden Room at Weleda UK HQ on Saturday 7 November.
    We hope to meet more of our members at both of these events and find new and exciting ways for people to get involved in growing our community owned seed company.
