Offsite: Shuswap Seed Swap

March 2 @ 10:00 am 3:00 pm PST

Thirty-four years ago, our then-Head Interpreter, 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. Since it was started in 1990, there have been well over a thousand events in communities all across the country. From a little seed, a great tree grows!

Come see us at the Shuswap Seed Swap, organized by the Shuswap Seed Savers group it’s one of the largest events like it in the province. Founded 30 years ago at Green Croft Gardens and hosted by Gabriele & Wolf Wesle and June Griswold it quickly outgrew many local venues, this event now calls the Splatsin Community Centre their host site. It’s a great opportunity to buy or trade seeds and purchase plants from a variety of amazing vendors, as well as network with locals who love to garden. There will also be garden related workshops, and we’ll be there with our preserves and to talk about some of the heritage seed work we’re doing in 2024. If you’re in the area, please come by! Admission and parking are both free.
