A Little Seedy at Scadding Court


I'm sure everyone (myself included) is dreaming of the days to come where the sun is shining, all this silly ice melts and we replace those piles of dirty snow with green grass, fresh flowers and MY favourite - fruit and veggies straight out of the garden.

On March 17th, Food Share will be hosting an event at The Scadding Court Community Centre called Seedy Saturday.

This is the place to be if you are on the lookout to decorate your green space with unusual, heritage, organic vegetable, herb and flower seeds. Not only can you purchase seeds and neat gardening tools, you also have the opportunity to swap seeds with other nature loving gardeners.

Through their fundraising efforts Seeds of Diversity(a non-profit organization working to grow, propagate and distribute over 1500 varieties of seeds) are spreading the word about the importance of preserving Canada's genetic plant heritage.

Seedy Saturday runs from 10am-3pm, so stay for a little while because there will be workshops, an Eco Fair with various local environmental organizations and even some tasty treats! I'd say that this is a pretty good deal for a suggested donation of $2.00 and even though I only have my tiny 2 feet by 4 feet patch of gardening area, I think I may just give this green thumb thing a whirl.
