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 Distribution:

Please contact each site for information about requesting seeds. Most sites are serving specific geographic areas, please contact only the location closest to your neighbourhood.

If you’re in Leslieville, Beaches, East York or Scarborough you can fill out this form and submit to
