West Coast Seeds Fundraiser 2023

by | Jan 16, 2023 | Events, Garden News

Hello Green and Gold Garden Supporters – and Happy New Year!

Good news – once again, we will be participating in West Coast Seeds’ annual seeds fundraiser. This gives you the chance to order over 100 varieties of vegetable, flower and herb seeds from the West Coast Seeds fundraising website!

With every order 40% of the packet price will be generously donated to the Green and Gold Community Garden. We will use these funds to cover gardening equipment and supplies for our 2023 season.

You will save on shipping costs as all of the seeds are sent to the Green & Gold Garden for pick up in March.

Seeds may be in short supply again and this fundraiser gives us all a head start on the gardening season.

Our seed fundraiser starts on Friday, January 13 and runs until Tuesday, January 31.

Here’s how to order fundraising seeds:

1. Go to the West Coast Seeds fundraising website. Here you can see the available fundraising seeds, photos and descriptions of the plants, and growing information.

2. Click Shop to select the seeds you would like. (A minimum $10 order is requested, please. You might like to consider adding an extra packet of seeds to your order and donating these to the Green & Gold Community Garden.)

3. When you have finished choosing your seeds click Cart and select the Green & Gold Community Garden from the drop-down menu under Select Your Organization.

4. Please include your name, phone number and email address in your contact information.

5. Confirm your order and Proceed to Check Out for payment through their secure payment site.

6. You’ll receive a confirmation email from West Coast Seeds for your order.

7. Your seeds will be shipped to the Green & Gold Community Garden for pick up. We will contact everyone by email once the seeds have arrived in Edmonton and are sorted and available for pick up in March.

Everyone is welcome to participate so please let friends and family know about our fundraiser too!

Please note: you must be able to pick up your seeds in Edmonton.
