We’re happy to announce the 2019 BC Seed Gathering! Save the date and watch this space for updates on content and registration. Details, agenda and registration coming soon!

The BC Seed Gathering aims to engage new and established growers, organizers, and advocates working to increase the supply, quality and diversity of seed in British Columbia as well as improve seed access. The Gathering will offer learning and engagement opportunities for seed growers (new and experienced) as well as seed advocates, particularly those who are organizing Seedy Saturdays, seed libraries and other initiatives in their communities that support biodiversity and seed access. The BC Seed Gathering is the place for folks working across the seed spectrum to come together in one place to foster collaboration.
