Why shop local?

Local businesses are more likely to utilize local ads, banks, and other services. Supporting local businesses preserves the economic diversity of our communities and the unique character of our neighbourhoods.

According to the LifeCycles Project, one kg of grapes can travel 10,408km to reach our homes in the Comox Valley, and cause 1.4kg of greenhouse gas emissions. Buying a hybrid car and recycling is one thing, but if you want to make a real impact on global warming, we invite you to look at what you eat and where it comes from.

Fresh, locally grown food is more nutritious and it tastes better. It supports local farm families and builds community. By supporting local farmers today, you can help ensure that there will be farms in your community tomorrow, and that future generations will have access to nourishing, flavourful, and abundant food. And did we mention that there is just something special about meeting the folks who grow your food?

Seeds thanks the our local food producers and farms for helping us to maintain a fantastic and delicious year-round inventory of beautiful, local food.
