Go organic this holiday season and support local, certified organic growers in British Columbia.
Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for someone special, preparing a holiday feast, or treating yourself, our Organic BC gift guide has you covered. The best part? Buying local, organic gifts supports farming practices that reduce greenhouse gases, sequester carbon, and increase farmers’ resilience to climate change. Here are our top picks for organic gift giving this holiday season, no matter who is on your list.
Gift the grower on your list 100% BC-grown vegetable, herb, flower, and grain seed. These local, organic seeds are good for the planet, the local economy, and regional food diversity and security.
