SEEDS needs fresh green thumbs

The group’s annual general meeting is on Nov. 22

Submitted by SEEDS Nelson

SEEDS Nelson is hosting its annual general meeting on Monday, Nov, 22 at 5:30 p.m. at 604 Ward St. (upstairs). They invite all members to attend. COVID-19 protocols will be in place for everyone’s safety and comfort. To update your membership, head to www.seedsnelson.org.

Numerous longstanding board members are coming to the end of their terms and will be stepping down, and thus SEEDS Nelson is determined to recruit some new blood and fresh green thumbs to the organization.

SEEDS Nelson was created in 2012 and had a shared greenhouse space with the City of Nelson parks department until a windstorm in 2016 destroyed the greenhouse. Up until recently SEEDS Nelson had been working toward erecting a repurposed greenhouse in an underutilized green space.

“Working with the other board members to move our mission of food security and inter-generational programming has been a fulfilling challenge for the past number of years,” says SEEDS Nelson board chair Stephanie Myers says. “We look forward to what some new board members can bring to the organization.”

The organization is in good standing with the BC Societies Act and has a current website, Facebook and Instagram accounts. The organization’s annual fundraising calendar is always a success and used by numerous businesses around town as staff gifts.
