Hot off the heals of a very successful fundraising campaign with the 2018 Nelson Homes and Gardens calendar SEEDS Nelson had another check mark in the WIN department.

The SEEDS board members were in attendance at the city council meeting on Monday Dec 4th to hear the council unanimously passed a recommendation from the city staff to gift SEEDS Nelson with the GroMore greenhouse from the Lakeside Park location and help with the moving of this greenhouse up to the 7th Street Park. This means SEEDS Nelson is moving as of spring 2018.

The details and time-line still need some fine tuning, but both the city council, public works departments and SEEDS itself are excited and enthusiastic about the possibilities this move opens up.

The 7th Street location has great sun expose, a parking lot close by as well as lots of high density living including seniors development. SEEDS is also working with one of the home building centres to find the best deal to re-skin the greenhouse.

SEEDS Nelson would like to thank the city staff and council for all of their support throughout the years and we look forward to continuing this great relationship at a new sunny location.
