Each year Jill Bishop (above right) of Urban Tomato organizes “Seedy Sunday.” It’s and event at which gardeners can buy and exchange seeds, talk gardening, and learn the latest info about what’s good in growing things.
Seed savers like Muscott Seeds (in the first photo) and Bear Root Gardens (above) have booths where you can buy seeds and talk planting.
But there’s also lots of good info about how best to create sustainable, low maintenance, good for you and good for the planet gardens. Ontario Invasive Plants (above) and Peterborough Pollinators (below) show the way to make a garden that is beautiful and diverse, doesn’t introduce invasive plant species that can threaten farmland and wildlife, all while helping the bees and butterflies.
If you missed Seedy Sunday this year, keep an eye on Jill’s blog in March next year and come get your seeds on.
