Calgary Seedy Saturday

Mar 16 2013 - 10:00am - 3:00pm

From the Calgary Seedy Saturday website:

This family event will have displays by:

 

  • local seed savers,
  • prairie seed companies,
  • native plant collectors,
  • conservation groups,
  • community gardeners,
  • organic growers; as well as,
  • a seed exchange table,
  • refreshments,
  • presenters, and
  • a kids corner!

Calgary Seedy Saturday is part of the worldwide Seedy Saturday/Sunday events that celebrate open-pollinated seeds. In Calgary, the event is coordinated with the support of the Community Garden Resource Network.

 

Calgary Seedy Saturday is keeping the skill of growing from seed to seed alive in Calgary. As large commercial seed companies consolidate and only offer more hybrids and patented varieties, we are increasingly losing the regionally adapted collections that have developed in our unique prairie climate.

 

Calgary Seedy Saturday helps maintain this irreplaceable genetic diversity by offering non-hybridized, non-GMO varieties of seeds. You and your family can discover the superior taste of heirloom vegetables, learn to save seeds and share them with your neighbours. As you grow them season after season these seeds will adapt and grow that much healthier!
