How It Works

Seed Collection:

We are looking for seeds! If you have seeds you would like to donate, please get in touch with your nearest drop-off location (check the map above if you’re unsure).

Please package seeds into envelopes (if you can). It’s helpful if you put in enough seeds for one person, such as 5-8 squash seeds or 10-15 tomatoes. Tell us what the seeds are and what year you grew them. Also please leave your name and contact information so we can tell you about seed pick up!

Seed Requests:

Interested in seeds this year? Check back soon for instructions on how to place your seed request!

Seed Distribution:

Throughout the month of March, we will be distributing seeds to those who placed a request. This will be done through pick-ups and deliveries in some neighbourhoods. Check back for more information on dates!
