From little things...

We are delighted to share with you a new range of products we are stocking at Celsia Florist. The organisation is Strathcona 1890 Urban Seed Collections and their business is in seeds.

Strathcona 1890 has created collections of seeds that people with little or even no yard can grow. The idea behind the venture is that we can all produce a portion of the food that we eat, cutting down on our carbon foot print and becoming more connected with what we consume.

The seeds are all non-gmo, open pollinated, non-chemically treated for container gardens to be grown on urban balconies, roof top gardens and window boxes so not having a back yard is no excuse!

The seeds come in a variety of different collections including quick growing, nectar and pollen flowers, tasty and beneficial herbs and edible flowers for culinary use.

Each collection comes with full instructions and growing tips along with suggestions for even those with a black thumb!

Proceeds from sales of these unique collections of seeds also help create new jobs in the Downtown Eastside as well as help develop sustainable food growing programs at Vancouver's inner city schools, daycares and community centres.

You can buy Strathcona 1890 products in our shop or at our online store.
