The purpose of Seedy Sunday in Nanaimo is to educate and engage the community in the preservation of heritage seeds through an annual seed exchange event. The Seedy Sunday event is a vital element in the cultivation and co-creation of sustainable communities.
This event includes:
– seed exchange and sales of seed from local, organic and non-GMO sellers;
– sales of plants, veggie starts; and tubers;
– educational workshops and displays that foster home gardening and local agriculture and sustainable practices which do not rely on the use of toxic chemicals;
– sales of mason bees houses, rain barrels, composters and other tools for self-reliance;
– an activity centre for kids; and
– a seed exchange table (bring your own well marked seeds to trade).
Interested in having a table or presenting a workshop? We’d love to hear from you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
