CEED Centre

CEED Centre Society

We are dedicated to community education on environment and development (CEED) as a registered charity and not-for-profit organization.

We provide programs and services in three categories: food security, community development and heritage preservation.

Food Security

See our Programs and Services



The Society operates several long-term projects out of the CEED Centre in Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Canada. Our programs and services generally fall into the categories of food security, community development and heritage preservation.

Community Development in South Haney

We aim to identify and mobilize the human assets in our local neighbourhood (South Haney) through a comprehensive community initiative. Contact us to learn more about this rapidly evolving project.

Golden Ears Transition Initiative

The CEED Centre is just one local organization in the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows area (Golden Ears area) that is supporting a grassroots look at how we can cope with global trends at the local level to build greater resilience into our community. More

Sharing Backyards

We are the local host for the Sharing Backyards website and program in the Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows area. This program links people that can offer planting space to those who would like to use it. We are looking for page sponsors.

School Neighbourhood Gardens

The CEED Centre is part of a community partnership creating school garden and cooking programs at schools in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. We now have flourishing programs at four schools. More

Aldridge Acres Connex Project

We are now developing a school farm in Maple Ridge with partners School District #42 and the Aldridge Family. Stay tuned for news from the farm or contact us to lend a hand (or green thumb).

History Project

We are looking for more information about our past for our History section. Contact us if you were involved in the 1990s or before.


We have compiled a large amount of information about pesticide alternatives on our Campaign for Pesticide Reduction! Maple Ridge website. We hope to evolve this into a province-wide pesticide alternatives education program utilizing a future CanadaGrowSmart website with enhanced features.


Now Recruiting Volunteers, especially web-savvy people, front desk people and avid gardeners.
