KinSeed Ecologies


ecological gardening and native plant seed


Rewilding for all beings, working with you

We share our spaces with other beings – animals, insects, fungi, bacteria, plants.  By establishing ourselves and creating our home spaces we have altered and disturbed the home spaces of others.  See yourself as part of of something special, all life.  Share your home with other beings, as if they are kin.

We can assist you with ecological gardening and restoration consulting and coaching – how best to design with and incorporate native plants into your home spaces.  We can provide you with native plant seeds from our pre-packaged selection or work with you, through our contract nursery services, to develop a seed mix or suite of propagated native plants suitable for you and your family, and ecologically appropriate for your garden, yard, or restoration project. Come see us at an event or attend a program in our community. Check out the calendar.

KinSeed Ecologies grew out of the Kootenay Native Plant Society (KNPS), a non-profit environmental organization established in 2012 to promote knowledge, appreciation, conservation and restoration of West Kootenay native plants and natural habitats through education, research, and on-the-ground activities.   We are proud to work closely with KNPS and continue to connect people, plants, and place!

Yellow glacier lilies and lomatiums at Pulpit Rock, Nelson.  Get out for a hike and see the beauty of plants. Maintain your distance from other people and enjoy the splendour of native wildflowers!
