The BC Seed Gathering is a provincial gathering engaging new and established growers, organizers, community leaders, and advocates working to increase the supply, quality, and diversity of seed in British Columbia as well as improve seed access. Through diverse sessions and engagement opportunities, the Gathering provides a platform for delving into all aspects of seed – from techniques to marketing models, seed democracy issues to community organizing – with the goal of strengthening local seed economy alignment and connecting our communities. The BC Seed Gathering is the place for folks working across the seed spectrum to come together in one place to foster collaboration.
