For over 10 years FarmFolk CityFolk has been working closely with vegetable seed growers and seed companies across BC and is a regional partner for the Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security. We provide seed-growing resources, deliver workshops and field days, and conduct research with a long-term vision of a thriving ecological seed sector in BC that produces high-quality seed crops at a commercial scale.
