Seed Savers plant sale Saturday

The sale will be held at the K’omoks First Nation Band Hall, Dyke Road, Saturday, 9-noon.

The Comox Valley Growers and Seed Savers have once again saved the seeds from heritage and non hybrid food plants and flowering plants beneficial to pollinating insects.

These seeds have now grown into healthy little plants ready for you to take home on Saturday,  May 9.

Seed Savers are passionate about the many varieties of heirloom tomatoes they grow – cherry to beafsteak; old favourites like Golden Nugget, Red Russian and Money Maker, and newer varieties like Indigo Rose,  an inky black tomato and Valencia, a big juicy golden yellow slicer.

They have also grown salad greens, squashes, herbs, berries and more.

A selection of seeds will also be available.

Master gardeners will be present to answer your questions as will a team of seed saver volunteers – look for the yellow bibs.

Many thanks to Mudsharks for coffee and to Sea Soil for potting soil.

The sale will be held at the K’omoks First Nation Band Hall, Dyke Road, Saturday, 9-noon.
