Seedy Saturday Gardening Event

Community Event
Mar 21 2009 - 11:30am to 4:00pm

Master gardeners present a Seedy Saturday Gardening event.

The day starts with a seed exchange and continues with vegetable gardening seminars and seed-saving workshops. The event is designed for gardeners of all skill levels but particularly those who are new to it.

There will be seminars on how to save seeds, how to start seeds, how to create vegetable beds, how to compost, and how to grow gardens in patio containers or where land is limited.

"With the popularity of the book The 100 Mile Diet, and with increased public awareness of food production, environmental degradation, and the usage of fossil fuels to transport produce from farms to grocery bins, more people are becoming interested in growing their own food," said Fawn Knox.

Admisssion is free, with optional donation to the Kamloops Food Bank. Participants are encouraged to bring saved seeds or leftover packaged seeds for exchange, but those who don't have seeds will still get to take some home.
