Annually, Northern Wildflowers Inc. donates a minimum of 1% of our annual sales to groups that support regreening, outdoor classrooms and food security. Last year, our first annual Community Garden Giveaway supported over 30 amazing grassroots projects across Canada and we are doing it again. This year we are making the process simpler by providing eligible groups with Garden Seed Kits, valued at over $50 each.
You'll see a list of eligible projects below, however projects that introduce children to and support older adults in gardening are particularly close to our hearts. 
Eligible projects include:
-community gardens/food forest/ pollinator gardens
-those that engage children, youth, older adults and/or other vulnerable groups in gardening. These projects might be led by daycares, schools, clubs, nursing homes, hospitals, horticultural societies, shelters, group homes etc.
-free-of-charge community seed libraries
