Seed Donation Program
At the BC Eco Seed Co-op we are proud to donate seed to aligned community initiatives in Canada doing great work and rely on donations to make change in their communities. Our donations primarily focus on community initiatives around growing and producing food, Indigenous initiatives, educating on food systems, social justice, empowerment, community connections and more!
We receive a large number of requests and do our best to accommodate as many worthwhile projects as possible depending on our inventory. We try to evaluate all donation forms within a three weeks of receiving your request and will follow up with you for details.
April 2021: We have distributed all donations for 2021 - form submissions are welcome anytime however we will not be again reviewing or following up until November 2021.
