Joanne Hutchinson is active volunteer in her east Toronto neighbourhood and in Zambia. Joanne has a long term commitment to sustainability and when on a visit to Africa in 2011 she saw the poverty and need in very poor western Zambia and started, Socio-Economic and Environmental Development Solutions (SEEDS). SEEDS is a registered Canadian charity which provides non GMO fruit and vegetable seeds to Zambia which supports a local tree and fruit tree nursery for agricultural training and rehabilitation. The fundraising and seed collecting program here in Canada provides an interesting model for sustaining a self help project in Africa.
