Projects We Support Together

Every year we donate the equivalent of at least 1% of our annual sales to projects that promote food security, enjoyment of wild spaces and schoolyard greening.


Canadian Seed Library Adoption
Seeds of Diversity

This year we supported Seeds of Diversity's Canadian Seed Library program. The Seed Library is a collection of over 2900 regionally-adapted and rare seed varieties and includes over 6,000 seed samples, backing up the work of seed savers and Canadian heritage seed companies. Seeds of Diversity's member seed growers multiply these seeds to keep them viable and available for future gardeners and farmers. This not-for-profit project depends on volunteers and donors to adopt a seed into the library, protecting it in perpetuity, grow out seed and return freshly-saved seed to the library and donate rare varieties to the collection. This year we adopted the Christmas Lima Bean in order that this variety can be propagated in larger numbers in 2022. Originally from Peru, this true lima bean has a bold, meaty flavour and chestnut texture.

Native Seed Bomb Workshops
Science North and Dynamic Earth (Sudbury)

We donated a customized native seed mix and supplies to help the staff at Science North and Dynamic Earth deliver workshops on making seed bombs, all while discussing the importance of supporting pollinators for countless visitors over the fall and winter months.

Wildflower Planting
Kivi Park (Sudbury)

This summer we helped our friends at Kivi Park and the Sudbury Finnish Language School add more native plants to the park. The plan included over 1,300 native wildflowers to provide spring, summer and fall nectar sources for pollinators, host plants for monarchs (+another 6 or so butterfly species), increase the biodiversity in the park, beautify the areas along walking trails and create a beautiful wildflower garden to commemorate the Finnish Language School’s 50 year anniversary.


Toronto Seed Library

We donated seed packs from a dozen native wildflower varieties to support the Toronto Seed Library's collection. The TSL is a community based seed library with twenty on-location and two travelling branches to support the various communities within the Greater Toronto Region build a network of seed sharing as well as resources for urban agriculture.

Winnipeg Trails Association

In the spring of 2021 we donated wildflower seed packs to the Winnipeg Trail Association for their seniors pen pal program and as appreciation gifts to their network of volunteers. Founded in 2003 and incorporated as a non-profit in 2017, Winnipeg Trails is a dynamic organization that plays a critical and comprehensive role in the development of a modern, sustainable city through the primary lens of active transportation.


Sudbury Community Garden Network and Atikameksheng Anishnawbek Community Garden
Milkweed Donations

Throughout the fall of 2021 we donated over 300 milkweed seedlings to various community gardens to support them in creating monarch butterfly habitat.


In 2020 we supported the Junction Creek Stewardship Committee, Kivi Park and Sudbury Shared Harvest. Several hundred native wildflower seedlings were planted at multiple sites, to be enjoyed by wildlife, community members and visitors for years to come. Together, our support helped these organizations reintroduce several important native species including swamp and butterfly milkweed which are the host plants required by monarch butterfly.
