Spring is in the air, and so is the excitement for Pontiac Seedy Saturday! If you're a green thumb or just starting your gardening journey, mark your calendars for Saturday, April 6, 2024, because you won't want to miss this event. From 10 am to 3 pm, join us at the TCRA Building, 775 Route 366, Ladysmith, Quebec, for a day filled with seeds, knowledge, and community spirit.

What's Seedy Saturday All About?

Seedy Saturday isn't just your average gardening event—it's a celebration of open-pollinated and heritage seeds. Whether you're a seasoned gardener with years of experience or just dipping your toes into the soil for the first time, there's something here for everyone. And the best part? It's all about community and sharing.

Seed Exchange Extravaganza

The heart of Seedy Saturday lies in our seed exchange table. Picture this: rows upon rows of seeds lovingly saved by fellow gardeners. It's like a treasure trove of botanical delights waiting to be discovered. Have some old favorites you've been growing for years? Bring them along and swap with others. It's not just about seeds; it's about the stories and experiences that come with them.

Learn and Grow Together

At Pontiac Seedy Saturday, education is key. Throughout the day, we'll be hosting three free lectures covering topics like "Regenerative Gardening Techniques," "How to Save Seeds from Your Garden," and "Home Composting." Plus, you'll have the chance to chat with local experts on all things gardening and plant-related. Got burning questions about your tomato plants or wondering how to start composting at home? We've got you covered.

More Than Just Seeds

But wait, there's more! Pontiac Seedy Saturday isn't just about seeds (although they're definitely the stars of the show). Browse through our free used gardening book table, participate in virtual presentations, and let the kids unleash their creativity with fun children's activities. And don't forget about the raffles and door prizes—because who doesn't love a chance to win some gardening goodies?

Join the Green Revolution

Pontiac Seedy Saturday isn't your typical garden show. We're all about keeping things grassroots—low overhead, low admission, and fueled by the passion of volunteers and local talent. It's a chance for attendees to not only learn and shop but also to contribute to a community-driven movement toward ecological and sustainable farming and gardening practices.
