Something seedy going on

Something seedy will be going on at the Vernon Rec Centre this Saturday – but that's a good thing.

The annual Seedy Saturday event will fill the centre with seed and plant sellers, locally grown and made food, natural products, chickens, eggs, honey and more. 

Experts will be on hand to teach about heirloom varieties, seed saving and starting.

Okanagan Regional Library will have books on gardening, seeds and beekeeping as well as information on its seed lending library.

Friends of the Library and Alpine Centre Book Warehouse volunteers will have gently used garden books for sale, and members of the Vernon Garden Club and the Okanagan Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer gardening questions.

Find out more about heirloom seeds at the Seeds of Diversity display table or from the Kalamalka Seed Library. Learn more about conserving water while gardening at the RDNO information booth, and enter for a chance to win a rain barrel. 

The Sustainable Environment Network Society and Pollinator Pathways will have fun, hands-on children's activities.  

There will also be presentations on how to make a straw garden, the effect of the moon on gardening and more.

Seedy Saturday also includes a free community seed swap table where people can bring their extra seeds or plants to share with others.

Admission is by donation, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
