Comox Valley Growers and Seed Savers (CVGSS) has been presented with the 2012 Community Action Award.

This annual award from the Comox Valley Chapter of the Council of Canadians is presented to a community organization that promotes social, economic or environmental justice.

In the past, Council of Canadians has given the Community Action Award to groups such as Water Watch, CoalWatch and Food Not Bombs.

For 13 years, CVGSS has been working to conserve and preserve our local plant diversity by encouraging and supporting public participation in growing heritage and non-hybrid food crops and plants.

Its members organize Seedy Saturday every spring, promoting seed saving, sharing and exchanging, encouraging organic gardening and composting, and providing information on mason bees.
