Seedy Saturday



Calling all aspiring, novice and expert gardeners!

Usher in Spring and kick off the 2024 growing season by attending Seedy Saturday, on Saturday, March 23rd, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. It’s a fun and free event with vendors, speakers and give-a-ways.

Seedy Saturday has numerous vendors offering a wide assortment of seeds, seedlings, native plants, garden-related items, garden art, honey, beeswax candles, lavender & more.

Join the Georgina Public Library, at 10:30 a.m., for a gardening themed story time, for children aged 2 to 5 years old. As well, they have a variety of gardening resources available. There are also free children’s gardening activity bags.

You’re invited to bring seeds to exchange at the Seed Swap table and take away free seeds donated by others, including organic, open-pollinated and heritage seeds available from the Seed Library.

Bring your gardening questions and chat with Master Gardeners as well as representatives of the three local garden clubs. Three presentations from knowledgeable speakers will be made throughout the day: Seed Starting - Food & Flower Seeds with Green & Bloom Farm, Full Soil Foodweb & Compost with The Glen Road Organics, Discussion Panel and Q&A with Green & Bloom Farm, The Glen Road Organics & Clearwater Farm.

Seedy Saturdays began in 1990, when, BC resident and horticulturist, Sharon Rempel organized the first ever “Seedy Sunday” seed exchange at VanDusen Botanical Garden, in Vancouver. Now, 34 years later, the event is global, celebrating the importance and diversity of heirloom and open-pollinated seeds in almost every country in the world. There are more than 100 events just in Canada alone and thousands around the planet in the ‘spring’ of every year.

Seedy Saturday is organized and hosted by the three local garden clubs: Cannington, Beaverton and Georgina-Brock, who cross-pollinate their time and resources. Horticultural societies work to promote, introduce and encourage an interest in gardening and the environment.

Seedy Saturday is supported by the Ontario Horticultural Association.
