Innisfil is hosting its first Seedy Saturday next week, and I’m excited to be part of it. This is a community seed swap, where gardeners can exchange seed that they have collected themselves – which is great, because local seed produces plants that are more adapted to local growing conditions.
But there’s going to be so much more!
Sponsored by the Innisfil Seed Library, the event will include seed sellers, garden-related local businesses and environmental and horticultural organizations. There will be demonstrations and talks throughout the day as well as children's activities. Lunch can be purchased. Admission is free.
It all takes place from 10 am to 3 pm on Saturday, April 1 at the ideaLAB & Library, 967 Innisfil Beach Road, Alcona.
I’ll have a table and will be selling plants, seeds and other items, as well as promoting two important organizations: The North American Native Plant Society and the Ontario Invasive Plant Council. Drop by and say hi!
I’m also one of several speakers. I’ll have a presentation on the topic of Leaves, Insects, Birds and Why Native Plants Matter, starting at 1:15 pm. More information: http://www.innisfil.library.on.ca/innisfil-seedy-saturday https://www.facebook.com/innisfilseedysaturday/
