Having lived in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver for over a decade I have seen a lot of money thrown at dealing with poverty, addiction and homelessness over the years. The fact is, money can’t fix everything.
All our collections come with a little something extra such as a recipe or instructions for a garden project. In fact we even included instructions for how to build your own truckfarm. Proceeds from sales of our unique collections of seeds help create new jobs in the Downtown Eastside as well as help develop sustainable food growing programs at Vancouver’s inner city schools, daycares and community centres. Job creation is focussed primarily on youth, single parents and people living on disability. You can find them all at http://www.strathcona1890.com or at the retailers listed listed on our site.
