Planning is now underway for Ladner Seedy Saturday 2018. It will be held on March 3, 2018 at the Ladner United Church in Ladner. We moved the date to March after experiencing a late spring in 2017. We know a later date means more plants will be available from our vendors. It was pretty hard to find plants for sale when there was still snow on the ground.
Our seed swap is always the highlight of the event so if you are a seed saver, this is the place to go. Bring your unused seeds from this year to our seed swap. They must be packaged in small envelopes so they can be traded at the event. We can't receive large bagfuls of seed on event day as the volunteers won't have time to sort and package them. It's important to plan ahead and label and pack your seeds before you arrive.
Ladner Seedy Saturday is a fundraiser for the Ladner Community Garden which opened in 2011. One of the missions of the community garden is to grow for the local food bank and other charities. This summer we partnered with the Anglican Church in Ladner and donated vegetables grown at the garden towards their community meals for low income people. From beets, carrots potatoes and garlic it made for heartwarming meals this summer and well into the fall.
So save the date of March 3, 2018. If you would be interested in being a vendor at our event please comment below.
