West Coast Seeds
There is something to be said about taking the time to grow plants from seed. The attention and care that is required to raise plants from teeny tiny pockets of hope takes nothing short of patience, commitment and true presence.
Choosing to seed, means choosing a slower pace of life, instead of simply going to the grocery store to buy produce or flowers, it's making a decision to allow time and nature to work their magic. We love that.
To us, any time spent in the garden is a gift - getting to put our hands in the dirt, soaking up the early morning light to water while the birds sing their sweet morning songs, the feeling of glee we experience at the sight of buds that we toiled over, finally breaking through the soil- it's one of the tender moments only gardeners will ever fully understand.
This week our focus is on West Coast Seeds, founded in 1983 in Vancouver, British Columbia with a mission to source and supply seeds of high quality to home gardeners, they follow the traditions of organic farming and gardening, with untreated and certified organic seeds as their main focus.

What West Coast Seeds Stands For
West Coast Seeds believes, first and foremost, in the principles of organic growing and sustainable agriculture. Namely, they believe that food and all plants should be grown without the use of synthetic chemicals and that the seeds we supply are an important component within the broader conceptual approach to organic gardening. They believe that growers are custodians of the land they grow on — however large or small — and that by nourishing the soil through organic gardening techniques like composting and crop rotation, the plants they grow will be more vigorous, and less demanding. They believe that food should be grown in healthy soil. They believe that promoting biodiversity is an essential element of healthy farming.
