It’s Seedy Saturday!

Shake off the snow and come out to buy or swap seeds–and meet some of the people and organizations promoting heritage seeds and local food production in the area.

The day includes workshops on:

  • Gardening even when you’re away during the summer;
  • Growing edibles;
  • Starting seed libraries;
  • Getting to 50% local food production in Ottawa by 2050.

Seedy Saturday happens at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre at Britannia Beach (102 Greenview Ave.) on Saturday, March 5, 2016 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

Details and schedule at https://www.seeds.ca/events/. (You’ll also find links to Seedy Saturday and Sunday events in Brockville, Pembroke, Perth and other locations.)
