What is Seedy Saturday?

"Seedy Saturdays are a remarkable phenomenon. They are not one event, but a series of separate events, which have sprung up across the country, each individually and uniquely organized under the same general themes of encouraging the use of open-pollinated and heritage seeds, enabling a local seed exchange, and educating the public about seed saving and environmentally responsible gardening practices. They usually occur on a Saturday, hence the name, but also occur on Sundays and other days." Source: Seeds of Diversity Canada .

Learn more about Seedy Saturdays on the Seeds of Diversity webpage 'Everything you wanted to know about Seedy Saturdays'.

Seeds of Diversity Canada is a group of seed savers from coast to coast who protect Canada's seed biodiversity by growing it themselves and sharing it with others. Find out how you can support seed saving and local distribution. On their website you will find seed saving resources and a list of Canadian Seedy Saturday events. Using their website, find ways to source local and Canadian seeds from area greenhouses or local vendors or use their online reference guide, the Canadian Seed Catalogue Index or find the best locally adapted seeds in your region with The Ecological Seed Finder.


Visit: BPL's Seed Library to borrow and donate seeds for your garden. Our Seed Library will open again for business in early June offering quick and easy to grow seeds that can be planted anywhere.
