There was a steady flow of visitors for the seventh annual Seedy Saturday and Community Corner/Cariboo Growers 5th Birthday Bash event Saturday.
The celebration took place in the Community Corner parking lot at the corner of Oliver Street and Third Avenue and across the street in Herb Gardner Park.
More than 25 vendors participated, many of them selling garden bedding plants and seed exchange, but also food and drinks to go along with musical entertainment and children’s activities.
The Community Corner in the former gas station building at the corner of Third Avenue and Oliver Street is home to Cariboo Growers, the Williams Lake Central Business Improvement Area office and Williams Lake Community Policing office.
Community Policing chair Andy Sullivan encourages people to volunteer with the organization.
The Cariboo Growers Farmers Co-op Store is a non-profit farmer’s co-operative that provides produce from more than 50 local growers, says Tatjana Lauzon, Williams Lake Food Policy Council chair and Williams Lake community nutritionist.
During the celebration, the Cariboo Growers co-operative was also raising funds to replace the walk-in freezer that has broken down.
