Transition Brockville / 22 February 2016

Looking for some interesting new vegetable and flower seeds? Want to learn about growing plants from seed?

Come to Seedy Saturday, a free seed exchange on March 5, sponsored by Transition Brockville and the Brockville Public Library. Area groups with an interest in food security, gardening, and seed-saving will have displays set up from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. You don’t have to bring seeds to take home seeds, but if you have saved some seeds, just package, label and date them and bring them to share.

Look for the children’s gardening activity for young gardeners. For those wanting guidance on seed-starting, John Defayette, who organized last year’s highly successful first Seedy Saturday, will have his seed-starting set-up on display.

Groups participating in this second Seedy Saturday include Athens Garden Club, Brockville Horticultural Society, Butler’s Creek Community Garden, Gananoque Horticultural Society, Lanark Leeds and Grenville Food Charter/Foodcore, Ontario Horticultural Association, Seeds of Diversity, Phil Hosick (Upper Canada Village gardener) and Transition Brockville.

On weekends, parking is free on the streets near the library, as well as in the public parking lot directly across the street from the library. The library is located at 23 Buell Street, one block north of King Street, the main street in downtown Brockville.
