Memory Garden hosts Seedy Saturday

More than 20 vendors selling garden plants and supplies and giving gardening demonstrations will be at Seedy Saturday, Saturday.

Seedy Saturday coming up this Saturday is a great way to get your garden started and help the Williams Lake Food Policy Council raise awareness about locally grown food and gardening.

The event takes place Saturday, May 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Memory Garden on Carson Drive and features more than 20 vendors.

At Seedy Saturday there will be a seed exchange, seedlings and seeds for sale, gardening demonstrations, kid’s activities, live music and food vendors, organizers said.

There will also be free mini-workshops with Brianna VanDeWijngaard (master gardener and owner of Puddle Produce) on soil testing, natural methods of fertilizing and making your own potting soil (beginning at approximately 10:45 a.m.).

Some of the other highlights will be the Columneetza Greenologist club selling their own seedlings as a fundraiser. The Science and Tech 11 class from Lake City seconday  will be selling  seedlings.

LeRae Haynes will be singing with students from Chilcotin Road elementary about some of our local producers and their animals at 11:15 a.m.

Representatives from the Potato House Society will also be at the Seedy Saturday event with another round of counter-top compost buckets available for $10.

And after the Seedy Saturday event the society will be hosting a free demonstration on electric solar fencing at the Potato House on First Avenue.

Many of the products grown locally can be found at the Cariboo Growers co-operative at the corner of Oliver Street and Third Avenue.
