Seedy Saturday

 

 

 

Seedy Saturday is an annual celebration of local seeds and food, gardening, and education that supports a healthy, strong community.

 

 

 Richmond’s annual Seedy Saturday for 2021 has gone virtual! Working with the Farm Folk City Folk, BC is having its first virtual provincial wide Seedy Saturday.

 

You can find more information here.

 

Instead of a Seedy Saturday, we are planning a Spring Fling a little later in the year, hopefully outdoors.

 

 

At the heart of Seedy Saturday is the seed exchange table: a place for local seed-savers to bring locally-grown, open-pollinated seeds, and the stories that come with them, to trade with other community members. To participate in the seed exchange please note the following criteria:

  • Seeds must be open-pollinated
  • Seeds should be packaged and labelled with:
    • Type of seed
    • Year saved
    • As much information about the variety as possible
    • Number of seeds in the package (optional)

 

Part of our seed swap table is our seed swap. This is where gardeners can swap seed with other gardeners. It is a great way to grow crops that you might not want to start from seed or forgot to start early enough in the season.

 

 

At Seedy Saturday, we will build momentum for the self-sustaining cycle of growing from seeds by sharing the resources and skills necessary for embarking on your seed-saving journey – one that may continue for generations to come.
