urban seeds

Vancouver based company Strathcona 1890
implemented the Urban Seed Project to help
promote and develop local, sustainable food
resources in the heart of Vancouver.

They have selected non-gmo and untreated 
seeds for container gardens on urban balconies, 
roof top gardens and window boxes. Proceeds 
from sales of these unique collections of seeds 
help create new jobs in the downtown eastside 
as well as develop sustainable food growing 
programs at Vancouver’s inner city schools, 
daycares and community centres. 

What a great gift idea for someone you love !!

bill fay self titled reissued at long last !

this amazing lp released on deram nova in 1970 sank
without a trace and has slowly gathered a cult following
for many years culminating in a proper and far overdue
reissue from 4MWB. this record is a slow grower but
few records have captivated me like this one. i listen to
it often and love it to bits ! it is finally available in store
come scoop one up !
