4] Post your video on on your Facebook timeline and tag “West Coast Seeds” with the hashtags #westcoastseeds and #organicgrowingstories.

5] Upload your video file below. We will vet the video and post on your behalf to YouTube, Facebook and our other social media platforms.

* All video entries submitted before the September 30th deadline are eligible for the contest. If you cannot or do not have the ability to confidently create a video, just know that our Garden Bounty Facebook Photo Contest is still open for entries until September 05, 2016

We can’t wait to see your creativity at work. In the meantime, from all of us at West coast Seeds, best wishes for a fabulous harvest in 2016.
