Seeds of Community presents: Seedy Saturdays 2020!

Co-hosted by PEI Libraries

Thursday, February 6, 2020

Every weekend in March. Seedy Saturdays are a chance for home gardeners to share seeds that they've saved, pick up seeds for their gardens, and learn about seed saving.

Seeds of Community presents: Seedy Saturdays 2020!

Join is at locations across PEI during the month of March to save and exchange seeds, and to learn how seed-saving can increase community resilience. The events are free of charge but donations are gratefully accepted.

Local farmer Carina Phillips will lead a workshop on seed-saving, followed by a community seed exchange. All are welcome to participate (even if you don't have any seeds to share). If you do have seeds to exchange, please provide the following information on seed packets: seed variety, where + when harvested, whether or not seeds are open-pollinated or heirloom. This year's events will be centered on the concept of FOOD SOVEREIGNTY: a food system in which communities have control over the production, trade, and consumption of their food. It prioritizes farmers' and community members' rights to food and a livable income. It actively resists the oppressive corporate food regime which restricts access to food for vulnerable populations.

Here's the schedule:

Saturday, March 7 - Confederation Centre Public Library, Charlottetown 1-3 pm

Saturday, March 14 - Summerside Rotary Library, 1-3 pm

Saturday, March 21 - Montague Rotary Library, 1-3 pm

Saturday, March 28 - Breadalbane Hall, 3-5 pm
