Connecting Western Canadian farmers to local communities - CANTERRA SEEDS' Rooted in the Prairies Project supports rural charities and non-profits in the Canadian Prairies.
Launched in 2021, Rooted in the Prairies Project invests in local communities across Western Canada – over $250,000 to-date! 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.
Read stories about our past Rooted in the Prairies Project recipients by visiting our Behind the Seeds blog.
There are two ways you can give back to your community this year:
Request to Amplify
Are you planning on supporting a non-profit organization in your community by donating proceeds from a 2023 crop? If so, you want to select “amplify” your donation request with CANTERRA SEEDS branded seed (canola, corn, wheat oats, barley, peas, beans, flax, canary seed) instead of cash!
Nomination deadline for amplified donations is March 31, 2023. Chosen recipients will be contacted prior to seeding.
Request to Invest
Does an organization in your community need help with funding? Request CANTERRA SEEDS to invest in your cause with a monetary donation under our Rooted in the Prairies Project banner. Funding is open until September 30, 2023 or until available funds have been distributed.
