Join us in an annual celebration of local seeds, gardening, and education that supports a healthy, strong community and local food system.

The 8th Annual Richmond Seedy Saturday is on Saturday, March 4th, 2017 at Thompson Community Centre, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Admission is by donation. For more information please see the event page or contact us. 

Spend the day at Seedy Saturday and and get ready for the upcoming gardening season with local seed, garden, and plant companies. Bring seeds for the seed exchange  and your gardening questions to ask a Master Gardener.  This is a family-friendly celebration so bring the whole family and enjoy the kids activity area, live music, baked goods, and tea and coffee. The event brings together community members, local seed, garden & plant companies, non-profits, and community groups to recognize the importance of, and increase access to, locally-grown and adapted seeds.

 

Workshops with organic farmer and seed producer David Catzel:

10:30 a.m. – Home-Scale Seed Saving

12:30 p.m. – GMO vs Hybrid vs Open Pollinated: What’s the Difference?

Whether you are a beginner or master gardener, novice or expert seed-saver, or just curious about gardening and our food system, there is something for everyone at Richmond Seedy Saturday. See you there!
