Veseys and the Community

As a family-owned business for over eighty years, Veseys has not only been actively involved in the agricultural community, but has also been a generous supporter of many well-deserving community groups such as the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation, Junior Achievement of PEI, Special Olympics, Rotary Club of Charlottetown, Charlottetown Food Bank, 4-H PEI, Farmers Helping Farmers and many more. By giving back to the community, Bev Simpson and his team at Veseys have earned the respect of many friends and feel much gratitude knowing that their community work has helped to make lives better and the community stronger.

Farmers Helping Farmers is a nationally recognized, award-winning organization of community-minded people with an agricultural background from Prince Edward Island, Canada. Their goal is to assist Kenyan farmers in becoming more self-reliant in agricultural food production. Together, they develop small-scale, practical agricultural projects, focusing on direct, person-to-person interaction, with little or no government structure. Veseys is proud to support Farmers Helping Farmers with monetary and seed donations, as well as sending Veseys experts to Kenya as part of the crop advisory team.

Easter Seals PEI  is a major project of the Rotary Club of Charlottetown in partnership with the Rotary Club of Summerside and the Rotary Club of Montague and Eastern PEI. Every year, Easter Seals PEI raises funds that go directly back into Island communities to enhance the lives of Islanders who live with a disability. This year Veseys staff raised $350.00 and Veseys Seeds Ltd. graciously matched our donation for a total of $700.00.
