If you want to participate in a popular community event that kicks off the gardening season in the Comox Valley, volunteer for Seedy Saturday on March 5 at the Florence Filberg Centre.

About 1,600 people are expected to attend, so it will be very busy.

You do not need special expertise to take part because the team leaders in every area will train their team and you will meet yours at the end of February. A volunteer meeting will be held at the Via Rail train station meeting room on Monday, Feb. 21 at 7 p.m.

There are many jobs to fill, including those in admissions, security, the seed exchange and helping out exhibitors. Altogether, about 50 more men and women to help out are being sought.

If you are interested, contact Luisa Ditmars, the Seedy Saturday co-ordinator, for more details at 250-334-8835 or luisa.seedsat@gmail.com. You can also visit www.comoxvalleygrowersandseedsavers.ca.
