Ah the wonderful signs of spring! A robin red breast, a smattering of dormant grass peeking out here and there, or if you live in this part of the world sleet, snow and/or a blizzard. But do not despair as the most positive sign of spring is this Sunday March 18th, 2012 in the form of Seedy Sunday. The annual event occasionally brings in a good snow storm (although probably not this year) and the equinox. Enthusiasts beginner or proficient can exchange seeds, explore options for local native plants as well as brush up on their composting skills. This day has a wealth of information available with expert speakers and booths offering tidbits on gardening in our climate. To top off all this opportunity to get excited about gardening, there are local producers of seeds. These small businesses care about the quality of seeds, what the origins are on their products and just how important diversity is. You won't find these seeds at any of the big box stores. We are proud to be included as one of the many vendors at this event where we will be spreading the word on rescuing urban fruit as well as spreading some jam for tastings too! We will have a huge assortment of our jams and jellies available for purchase at our table.
The event is located at Alberta Avenue Community Hall, 9210 - 118th Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta. Sunday March 18th, doors open from 11am to 4pm, website is: www.edmontonseedysunday.com
