Hosted by the Innisfil Seed Library, ideaLAB & Library and the Innisfil Garden Club, please join us for our community’s 1st annual Seedy Saturday! Our event will include seed sellers, garden-related local businesses and organizations, and we will be hosting a community seed swap. Talks and demos will happen throughout the day as well as children’s activities.
What’s a Community Seed Swap?
Simply bring seeds and swap them! This free exchange allows gardeners of all levels to swap seeds with others in the community at the Community Seed Swap table at the event. It’s a chance to find unusual seeds or learn about something you’ve never grown before.
What’s Seedy Saturday?
Seedy Saturdays are a phenomenon held all over Ontario, across the country and around the world. These events bring together like-minded gardeners, farmers, seed savers and community members passionate about mindful gardening, food security and our environment. We’re excited and proud to bring Innisfil into the fold.
