Our seed library is winding down for 2020 and we are accepting returns!


If you have tomato, lettuce, pea, or bean seeds available, we would love a donation. Our library relies on returns and donations to provide seeds to the community and those in need.

We are looking for non-hybrid varieties, meaning that two different varieties have not crossed.

You can find our seed return guidelines here. We’ll have seed return forms attached to our door for you to fill out and place in our mailbox.


You can drop off seeds at our office into our black mailbox just to the right of our door at 7611 Ash street.

Learn all you need to start gardening from our Veg-U-cation videos! Find how to clean up your garden. 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!
