Seedy Saturday 2018

February 24 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Our 14th Seedy Saturday in Mississauga!  It was another great success on February 24th, 2018 at the 14th annual Seedy Saturday at Unitarian Congregation on South Service Road. The event was co-hosted by the Mississauga Master Gardeners and Unitarian Congregation. There were different vendors and exhibitors including the Mississauga Food Bank and handmade cards with hand-pressed flowers along with information on community programs and others following the gardening and environmental theme. Kids could colour, try yoga, make a seed sphere and play games in the "Kids Korner". Workshops were being run all day. Some of the classes included Urban Gardening Techniques, Woodland Gardens, Native Plants, Medicinal Weeds and First Nation Seeds and their Stories. For those who wanted to fill their empty tummies, there was a cafe run by church volunteers.                         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, and place a bid on our silent auction items.  Anyone can bring seeds to share with others at our community seed exchange centre, and anyone can take some home. Educational workshops are a main attraction for eager learners, with topics this year ranging from Native Plants to Celebrating Local Rivers to Gardening for Urban Dwellers. After taking in a workshop or two, come visit the Great Hall packed with exhibitors. Bring the wee ones, and have them get garden inspired in the Kids Korner with Ecosource.  Try hands-on activities such as making wildflower seed spheres and playing seed-veggie matching, or sit for storytelling and seed yoga.  Activities are on-going through the day.  Fill...
