Brockville’s Seedy Saturday is bigger and better than ever this year.
The Brockville Public Library and Transition Brockville will be hosting the 3rd annual Seedy Saturday free seed swap on Saturday, March 11, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Brockville Memorial Centre, 100 Magedoma Blvd.
Seed savers and garden lovers are invited to swap and share seeds, and meet and share experiences with local gardeners. Our Seedy Saturday will also feature free planting activities for kids, as well as a seed sprouting demonstration. This year Seedy Saturday is expanding to include special guest speakers on improving your soil (Dave Alguire, 10:30) and starting your own seeds indoors (Jeremy Dutton, 11:00), as well as displays by local food and garden vendors.
Everyone is welcome to attend and pick up free seeds.
If you would like to register and bring your own labeled vegetable and flower seeds to swap, or for more information about Seedy Saturday, please contact Brandy at the library, 613-342-3936 or email@example.com, or Chris Stesky with Transition Brockville, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Transition Brockville’s mission is to build local resilience in these rapidly changing times. It works with existing groups wherever possible and focuses initially on the basics of life. With so much in our lives being outsourced and dependent on cash incomes, Transition Brockville encourage households and neighbourhoods to take back some control by doing more for themselves, directly. This leads to more diversification within our community, and gives us alternatives to fall back on when something goes wrong. Food gardening, food processing and storage, and cooking from scratch are within reach for most of us. For more information, visit www.transitionbrockville.com.
