This Week in the Ottawa Valley

Seedy Sunday in the Ottawa Valley

Seedy Sunday in the Ottawa Valley

March 2nd 2014 until March 2nd 2014

Seedy Sunday is a remarkable phenomenon that continues to catch on across Canada. Gardeners, seed savers, seed vendors, local food producers, organic practitioners and environmental groups come together in a venue where they can learn from one another, exchange ideas and seeds, and purchase seeds and plants in a fun social setting. It's a day to educate and learn, and to promote local food, more sustainable methods of growing, preservation and use of heirloom, organic, open-pollinated seeds.

Please remember to bring any of your own seeds, cuttings, plants or gardening treasures to exchange at the Swap Table! You can exchange or donate for any items of your choice and keep checking back throughout the day.

Presentations during the day are FREE and a presentation schedule will be posted a couple weeks prior to the event.

Food and refreshments are available. A Local Lunch is provided by the Fellowes Culinary Students and Cafeteria Services, and the Ottawa Valley Food Co-operative (www.ottawavalleyfood.org).

Seedy Sunday is a non-profit event operated by volunteers, and sponsored by the Ottawa River Institute (www.ottawariverinstitute.ca). Net proceeds will be donated to Seeds of Diversity (www.seeds.ca), a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of heritage seeds.
