Summer with the seed savers

Over the summer we do nfoxgloves and lupins share the vegetable garde with kale, orach and raspberries.ot have our regular meetings but last year we introduced informal garden visits. This proved to be a great time to visit, exchange tips and ideas and to talk gardening.

If anyone would like to be on the list opening their garden to visits from fellow members, please contact us. You choose the date and the time. No-one is expecting a show garden as in the garden tours. Just your every day working garden – which is always a work in progress.

Please sign up. Its a wonderful way to get to know each other.

The other thing we have over the summer is our volunteer appreciation BBQ. If you have volunteered for CVGSS in any way you are eligible! Wait for details re time and place.



Welcome to the Comox Valley Growers and Seed Savers website. This is your “home-grown” resource for do-it-yourself organic food production and seed saving in the Comox Valley!

We now have our own hand powered seed winnower (to separate the seed from the chaff) and use of an electric seed thresher (to separate the grain from the stalk).  See more under Resources.


Saving seeds is fun and rewarding in many ways.  Come join us and see for yourself !


Here are some of the features of this website:

  • New growers and veterans alike benefit from our cornucopia of gardening tips, written or chosen by local fellow gardeners with experience in this area.
  • Learn to save seeds such as tomato and lettuce – it’s easy and rewarding!
  • Find out about events like Seedy Saturday in March, Plant Sale in May, Garden Tours, and our schedule of Monthly Meetings. You won’t want to miss them.
