4-H Canada is launching its first-ever national fundraising campaign that will see participating 4-H’ers sell seeds, bulbs, and roots from Veseys Seeds Ltd.
Sixty per cent of sales will go back into supporting 4-H in Canada, with over half of the profit staying local.
“Our youth members told us they wanted to be part of a collective fundraising effort that embodied the 4-H values, was Canadian and had a positive impact on the environment,” said Shannon Benner, 4-H Canada CEO. “Our fundraising campaign fits all these criteria.”
Veseys Seeds is a 90-year-old P.E.I. company that sells its products online and through its catalogues across North America.
The fundraiser will launch on a pilot basis this fall. Interested 4-H regions, counties and clubs can find out more online and have until Sept. 30 to sign up. — 4-H Canada
