With the Rooted in the Prairies Project, CANTERRA SEEDS aims to make life better in the places that our customers call home.
Launched in 2021, Rooted in the Prairies Project invests in local communities across Western Canada, now totalling over $500,000. CANTERRA SEEDS was founded by Canadian seed growers and we are a farmer-owned company to this day. The intent of the Project was to give back to the communities that have helped us become successful. Our business started in the Prairies and we continue to be rooted there today.

The best investments are made in collaboration with organizations that share our commitment to serving farming communities in Western Canada. If you know of a local organization that needs support, apply today. There are two ways to help:
Are you planning on supporting an organization in your community by donating proceeds from a 2024 crop harvest? If so, you want to select “amplify” your donation request with CANTERRA SEEDS-branded seed (canola, cereals, pulses) instead of cash! Fill out the form by March 31, 2024 to be considered for this season.
Does an organization in your community need help with funding? Request CANTERRA SEEDS to invest with a monetary donation or sponsorship under our Rooted in the Prairies Project banner. Funding is open until December 31, 2024 or until available funds have been distributed.
