4-H Canada announced the launch of its first-ever national fundraising campaign, in partnership with Veseys Seeds Ltd. last week. Developed in consultation with 4-H youth members and volunteer leaders across Canada, the initiative will give 4-H’ers the opportunity to explore the joys of gardening, and develop hands-on leadership and fundraising skills through the sale of seeds, bulbs, and roots.
Sixty per cent of their retail sales will go back into supporting 4-H in Canada, with over half of the profit staying local. The 4-H Canada Veseys fundraiser is available across Canada to interested 4-H regions, counties and clubs, but participation in the fall pilot is limited, they can find out more and sign up by September 30 at 4-h-canada.ca/fundraising.
“Veseys Seeds has had a decades-long relationship with 4-H clubs on Prince Edward Island, having donated vegetable and flower seeds for their annual competitions,” said John Barrett, Director of Sales, Marketing & Development, Veseys Seeds Ltd. “We are delighted to partner on the national level with 4-H Canada in this fundraising initiative, as we believe strongly in their dedication to agriculture, and the environment in which we live.”
