BC Seed Gathering

Our BC Seed Gathering connects over 100 seed growers, advocates, and community organizers from across BC to build and align a strong provincial seed sector. Biennial seed gathering events increase the availability, supply, quality, and diversity of locally produced seeds through learning and engagement opportunities. We collaborate with stakeholders to build momentum from these gatherings for a broader impact on BC’s sustainable seed sector.

This year’s BC Seed Gathering will take place virtually from Friday, November 19th through Sunday, November 21st, 2021. Join us for a variety of seedy presentations, a tasting and recipe swap, live music, movie night, and more! Register here.

If you identify as Indigenous and would like to attend the event for free, please register with this link instead.

This style of learning environment provides space for various seed sector community members to share best practices, discuss issues, and network with groups outside of their region. BC Seed Gathering’s diverse session content intentionally facilitates meaningful dialogue and opportunities for participants to connect in a greater capacity. There are no other seed-specific events like this around.

BC Seed Gathering is co-presented with Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Department of Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems.
