We are excited to invite you to attend the annual Seedy Saturday event at the Roberts Creek Community Hall and Masonic Hall on Sat., March 4, 11am–4pm.
Highlights of this great day will include over 25 vendors providing seeds, plants, starts, veggies and locally handmade products as well as a kid’s zone, delicious local hot food and great door prizes.
Please join us in the Masonic Hall for the Sunshine Coast Seed Collective Seed Exchange, educational hub and awesome informative workshops.
Seedy Saturday is the Sunshine Coast’s annual community planting season kick-off event and One Straw fundraiser.
Saving seeds and growing food are among the most radical things you can do. At Seedy Saturday, you can access some of the best quality, non-GMO, chemical free seeds, many that have been harvested by local growers and community members on the Sunshine Coast.
Seeds also help you save money and cut out the middleman for buying food–as long as we have seeds, we hold the key to providing food, medicine and tools for the community. Exchanging seeds keeps our community rich.
If you have seeds, bring pre-packaged seeds and receive an equivalent amount of seed packets for free from the seed exchange table. Seed must be labelled with year of preservation, type of crop (peas, carrots, etc) and name of variety (“Black Prince Roma,” for example, if you know it). Little envelopes from the dollar store work really well, but ziplocks will do in a pinch.
Entrance is $2 suggested donation, and children under 12 are free. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Submitted
