The Citizen Seed Trial, or CST, is a citizen science program that engages gardeners in the process of vegetable variety trialing and seed breeding with the hope of growing BC’s seed-saving community!
We offer participants seeds for trialing, growing guidance, and trial updates through our CST Facebook Group and regular newsletters. Gardeners are welcome to try to select and save seed or enjoy the fruits of their labour when it comes time to harvest. In return, we ask for participants to share their observations with us through Seedlinked. As the CST is a citizen science program, we are not looking for perfection; we expect real results from real people.
