2015 Seedy Saturday – Calgary, AB

March 21, 2015 (10:00am - 3:00pm)
City: Calgary, Alberta
Location: Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Centre
Address: 1320 - 5th Avenue NW

Please invite your friends and family down to this fun event!

The event will have displays by:
• Local seed savers,

• Permaculture groups.

Calgary Seedy Saturday is part of the worldwide Seedy Saturday/Sunday events that celebrate open-pollinated seeds. 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.

Admission $2, children under 12 free (we accept Calgary Dollars)

See their facebook event page and website for more information.
