Seedy Saturday Coming to the Sault February 23

For all of you who miss your fix of the Sault Farmers Market in the winter, here's a chance to take part in Sault Ste. Marie’s first ever Seedy Saturday Seed Exchange and Sale.

Hosted by Clean North, the Sault Ste. Marie Horticultural Society and Seeds of Diversity Canada, this event will be held on Saturday, February 23rd, 2008 from 10 am to 3 pm in the United Baptist Church basement located at 41 Malabar Drive.

You may be aware that the number of people interested in gardening, growing their own food, buying local produce, food security and in environmental issues just keeps expanding. More and more gardeners are looking to have something different in their gardens as well as to network with like-minded people. They are concerned about genetically modified food, diversity issues and are looking for local, open-pollinated seeds for their gardens. Sault Ste. Marie’s Seedy Saturday will provide the opportunity for those people to come together and exchange or buy interesting and unusual heritage varieties of vegetable and flower seeds, participate in hands-on workshops, hear speakers and network.

Seedy Saturdays have been held in other parts of Canada since 1989 with great success. Come out and see what it's all about, Joe and I will be there with tasty, healthy, organic chili, fair-trade coffee, homemade cookies and more. With your help Seedy Saturday can "grow' into an exciting community event.

Take care,
Birgit
