Hosted by Foods of the Fundy Valley, the event at Caledonia Regional High School in Hillsborough will include seed sellers, garden-related local businesses and organizations, and a community seed swap. There will also be talks throughout the day and Foods of the Fundy Valley will offer their delicious soup bar at the event!
Seedy Saturdays are held across the country and around the world. These events bring together like-minded gardeners, farmers, seed savers and community members passionate about mindful gardening, food security and our environment.
What’s a Community Seed Swap?
Simply bring seeds and swap them! This free exchange allows gardeners of all levels to swap seeds with others in the community at the Community Seed Swap table at the event. It’s a chance to find unusual seeds or learn about something you’ve never grown before.
