Our 15th Seedy Saturday in Mississauga!
Seedy Saturday Sprouts Again
Our 15th Annual Seedy Saturday is coming . We welcome inspired, aspiring and experienced gardeners and seed savers, young and young-at-heart. Shake off the winter blahs and visit our exhibitor tables with dedicated community seed exchange centre, take in a gardening or environmentally-themed workshop, nourish yourself with tasty treats from our Cozy Café. Anyone can bring seeds to share with others at our community seed exchange centre, and anyone can take some home.
Educational workshops for new gardeners and experienced green thumbs include “Get Growing Vegetables in Plot, Vegetables in Pots”, Landscaping for Birds, and a hands-on workshop for children.
The workshops are free. An activity centre for children will be offered all through the event by EcoSource. Mississauga Master Gardeners will be on hand all day to answer your questions and share experienced advice.
