A taste of spring at sixth Seedy Saturday

Seed needs were fulfilled on a snowy Saturday and those who garden had a tiny taste of spring to come.

seedy-2The heart of the sixth annual event is the swapping of information and seeds and materials that have been preserved or developed in the community.

There were 28 vendors, about half from the County, offering everything from seeds to preserves, vegetables, honey and maple products. Guest speakers throughout the day spoke about native and rare plants, pollinator gardens, edible weeds, homesteading and forests. The County’s Food Not Bombs group provided complementary soup and bread.

“Thanks to all our vendors, speakers, and volunteers – and to everyone who came out on this snowy day for a little taste of spring,” said organizer Natalie Comeau. “We estimate that we had 1,500 visitors, and our food table served 110 free lunches.”

If you weren’t able to make it to Seedy Saturday, or if you’re still looking for seeds, you can access the entire seed swap stock at the County’s seed library, located at the Picton branch of the Prince Edward County library.
