SEEDS invites you to adopt a pot

SEEDS’ annual signature fundraising event Adopt-a-Pot is happening each Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon, until May 2.

SEEDS is a non-profit organization in Nelson working to improve food security in our community.

“The majority of our work at SEEDS is focused on our donation program,” says executive director Eva Hernandez. “Through this program we grow and donate over 500 lbs. annually of healthy, fresh greens to emergency food relief organizations such as the Nelson Food Cupboard. These greens are distributed and enjoyed by our fellow community members in need.”

SEEDS’ annual signature fundraising event Adopt-a-Pot is happening now. This fundraiser is the main source of funds for the donation program. With these funds they can purchase seeds, pay for the electricity required to operate year round, teach and support volunteers and grow healthy bountiful harvests for donation.

Maya is among those who have embraced the SEEDS Adopt-A-Pot project.

“These five gallon pots that we are offering are brimming over with luscious greens like arugula, spinach, chard, kale, mustard and lettuce varieties to be harvested gradually providing nutritious food for your family” beams Tina Shields, SEEDS board president and Adopt-a-Pot team leader.

SEEDS is also selling coupons this year for six pack of green starts so you can replant your pot when you have finished harvesting. Here are some photos of happy customers with their wonderful greens.

Visit SEEDS at the greenhouse at Lakeside Park this Saturday and May 2 between 10 a.m. and noon where you can support the work of SEEDS by purchasing one of these pots of greens for your health and the health of our neighbours.
