I hear that snowstorms have hit many of you, and that a bunch of snow is set to dump all over my region sometime late this week. What better time to get excited about seedstarting?
This weekend marks Montreal’s 10th Annual Seed Fair (aka Seedy Saturday & Sunday). It’s a two day affair featuring free workshops and presentation, and a seed exchange table. Dozens of local seed producers will be set up to sell their organic and heirloom vegetable, herbs, and flower seeds.
I’ll be there signing copies of my book and will be giving a presentation on Sunday afternoon.
I’m really excited about this event. Toronto’s Seedy Saturday is my favourite garden event, hands down. I’m curious to experience it through a different city with their own local vendors and sense of community gardening spirit. Plus, it’s held at the Montreal Botanical Gardens, which just happens to have the best greenhouse I have visited as of yet.
Saturday, Feb 13 – Sunday, Feb 14
10am to 4pm
Montreal Botanical Gardens | Jardin botanique de MontrÃƒÂ©al
