Our seed library is still available if you need seeds for 2020.


If you are interested in saving seeds and need tomato, bean, pea or lettuce seeds you can join our seed saving community!


You can take up to 3 varieties. Email coordinator@richmondfoodsecurity.org and we’ll have seeds available to be picked up. We have protocols in place to protect your health and ours to minimize cross-contamination.

Learn all you need to start planting from our Veg-U-cation videos! Find how to get the soil ready and start planting here. More videos to come!


This is part of a Veg-U-cation video series based on our Kids in the Garden Program for our students in the City of Richmond School District in British Columbia during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Digging in the Garden

Want to grow your own healthy, organic veggies?  Sign up for a community garden plot.

Find out how to plant common vegetables and herbs from our vegucation series. We post throughout the weekdays on everything from why you should grow it, how to grow it and how to save the seeds.

Due to the Pandemic, we are not teaching in classrooms, but we are growing food in a few school gardens. We have also made our lesson plans free to use. Take a look!
