Seedy Saturdays and Sundays 2017
Seedy Saturdays are happenings - seed exchanges, gardening fairs and celebrations of seeds! Seed sharers, protectors, propagators and the seed-curious gather to buy, sell, trade and learn about heirloom and open pollinated seeds. Events include speakers, vendors, tasty foods, and workshops ranging through how to plant a seed, prune and save to creating an urban garden habitat.
