Testimonials from the Community:
Bill Batycky, Calgary Board of Education
“As an educator I have seen and been impressed by the SEEDS programming for several reasons:
SEEDS provides effective environmental education for Canadian children. The GREEN School Program not only raises awareness and understanding of environmental issues, but goes further to include an important action component. SEEDS supports, encourages and recognizes all Canadian students’ actions from small actions such as a school poster display to more extensive actions such as remediating a pond.
SEEDS historically has always pushed the environmental envelope for school programs and curriculum. Over the decades all SEEDS’ programs have affected attitudinal change and promoted positive environmental actions within Canadian youth.” - Bill Batycky, Calgary Board of Education - Science Curriculum Specialist
Al Duerr, Former City of Calgary Mayor
“Through its programs in over 8,000 Canadian schools from kindergarten to grade 12 SEEDS has educated and inspired individual actions to preserve our environment. These small actions grow into millions and do make all the difference.
As the Mayor of Calgary, I was pleased to support and encourage their efforts. I remain a strong supporter of their very successful programs.” - Al Duerr, Former City of Calgary Mayor

a) You are teacher friendly.
b) You provide us with all the material needed (log book, flag, stickers, etc.)
c) Your suggestions are great (Heat Challenge)
d) You quickly acknowledge our efforts. This gives us an incredible boost! You are one of a kind.
