Strathcona 1890 : Urban Seed Project
The Strathcona 1890 Urban Seed Project was developed to help promote and develop local, sustainable food resources in the heart of Vancouver. The seeds, which are carefully sourced and traced are of non-gmo origin, open pollinated, non-chemically treated heirloom seeds. The seeds are perfect for the experienced or hesitant gardener. Each package has been carefully put together, with a well-thought out seed collection and step-by-step planting instructions. Proceeds from the sales help create jobs in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside as well as helping develop food growing programs at inner city schools. Each collection is designed to allow you to grow your own sustainable food garden; We recommend the Urban Apothecary - an easy to grow unique mix of Calendula, Basil Tea, Parsley, Oregano, Thyme, Chives and Rosemary. This collection of herbs is a time honoured approach to simultaneously enhancing your meals and your health.
