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.

Details on the 2021 Seed Gathering will be announced soon. Sign up for the Harvest Newsletter to be the first to know.

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.
