Annual plant sale goes Saturday

Comox Valley Growers and Seed Savers hosts its annual May Plant Sale this Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at Simms Millennium Park.

Comox Valley Growers and Seed Savers invite you to their seventh annual May Plant Sale this Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at Simms Millennium Park in Courtenay.

Funding from the sale of plants, grown from our own saved seeds, goes towards ensuring we have a continuing supply of locally adapted wholesome food for future generations.

There will be local experienced organic master gardeners available to answer questions and provide horticultural  information.

Organic master gardener Connie Kuramoto will be the go-to person for plant information. Kuramoto, currently teaching organic horticultural courses for Gaia College, believes that good, clean, local, organic, and non-GMO food is important for human health and harmony.

The plant sale will be held rain or shine.
