Thirty-one years ago, our then-Head Gardener, Sharon Rempel, founded a little something called “Seedy Saturday” that has since become an incredibly popular way, across Canada, to share seeds, knowledge and community.
The Grist Mill and Gardens invites you to Cawston Hall on Saturday, February 22nd, from 10am – 2pm, for our very own Seedy Saturday to exchange seeds and share knowledge.
Be sure to start looking through your seed boxes and cupboards to see if you have anything you’d like to share with others as part of our big seed swap table. Also, please invite anyone else you know who might be interested in this event.
ADMISSION IS BY DONATION with partial proceeds going to support the exceptional work of Seeds of Diversity, and in particular their Canadian Seed Library–a collection of over 2300 regionally-adapted and rare seed varieties–some of which have a very close connection with our site.
Presenters, vendors and info tables include:
