Seed savers hands up as we learn how to live, grow, and share seeds on the traditional lands of the Shishalh

The Sunshine Coast Seed Saving Collective (SCSSC) was founded by citizens of the Sunshine Coast who wanted to create food security, learn to complete plant cycles, and reconnect the communities of the coast to the heritage of our food ecology. From the time of Robin Wheeler, it is now run by a committed group of volunteers. The SCSSC holds seed saving workshops, records seed varieties being saved across the Sunshine Coast, and has implemented several seed libraries along the Coast.

Local Seed Libraries

The Sunshine Coast Seed Saving Collective has seed libraries in the town of Gibsons and Sechelt.
