Planting Positive Change

Growers are awakening to the environmental benefits of regenerative gardening. To repair our fragile environment, we must nourish the ground we walk on. West Coast Seeds strives to preserve the environment by nurturing the soil we grow in with untreated seeds.

Gardening for Wellness

Strengthening our connection to nature offers opportunities to reconnect with and restore our mental health. Be it through a brief escape, a relaxing experience, or a bountiful harvest, West Coast Seeds supports individuals and communities on their journey to garden for wellness.

Feeding Communities Together

By educating the next wave of growers, we can expand our knowledge of food, support self-reliance, and establish better food security for those who need it most. At West Coast Seeds, little can be large — a plentiful harvest from a tiny amount of seeds.
