Home gardeners, hobbyists, and seed enthusiasts take note: Seedy Saturday is going digital. From Feb. 19 to 21, Seedy Saturday and FarmFolk CityFolk will be hosting a virtual conference for the whole province.
Seedy Saturday organizers from across B.C. will be working with FarmFolk CityFolk to deliver a pandemic-friendly event, featuring community members and organizations, non-profits, and seed businesses.
The event includes speakers and sessions on seed saving and gardening education, as well as movie screenings, Q & As with master gardeners, local community discussions, and more that has yet to be announced. Throughout the conference, there will also be opportunities to swap seeds with participants in communities across the province.
Registration and the full schedule will be available at www.bcseeds.org.
The Comox Valley Growers and Seed Savers typically host a local Seedy Saturday every year, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no in-person local event this year.
That said, the show will go on – virtually.
This year the CVGSS is hosting its Seed Exchange online. A complete list of seeds available and instructions can be found at www.cvgss.org/ until Mid- March. The complete list of all seed vendors from the CVGSS 2020 Seedy Saturday is also available on the website.
