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 2020 has been CANCELLED due to COVID-19 concerns. We thank you for your interest and hope to see you in 2021!

 

 

Vendors for 2020:  CANCELLED

 

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 seedling swap. This is where gardeners can swap seedlings 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.
