Calgary Seedy Saturday is part of the worldwide Seedy Saturday/Sunday events that celebrate open-pollinated seeds. Calgary Seedy Saturday is keeping the skill of growing from seed to seed alive in Calgary. As large commercial seed companies consolidate and only offer more hybrids and patented varieties, we are increasingly losing the regionally adapted collections that have developed in our unique prairie climate.
This year's Calgary Seedy Saturday is on St. Patrik's Day, make being green an all-day event! Please invite your friends and family down to this fun event.\r\n\r\nThe event will have displays by:\r\n\r\n• local seed savers, \r\n• prairie seed companies, \r\n• native plant collectors, \r\n• conservation groups, \r\n• community gardeners, \r\n• organic growers; as well as, \r\n• a seed exchange table, \r\n• refreshments, \r\n• presenters, and \r\n• a kids corner!\r\n\r\nAdmission $2, children under 12 free (we accept Calgary Dollars)
