Nelson’s Seedy Saturday set for March 10

If the mild winter is calling you to plant some seeds, you’re just in time for Seedy Saturday,

If the mild winter is calling you to plant some seeds, you’re just in time for Seedy Saturday, March 10, at the Nelson United Church basement on Josephine Street.

Here is where you’ll find local, non-hybrid, Kootenay adapted seeds from some of the area’s best gardeners.

“Growers bring hardy varieties that are tried and true,” says organizer Suzy Hamilton. “They are true to seed which means they will come back the same year after year. One of my favourites that I grow  is the black tomato.”

Hamilton says there will be mini workshops on starting seeds and early gardening tips, as well as some local music this year.

Sponsored by the 11th Annual Nelson Garden Festival, EcoSociety, Kootenay Food Co-op and the Nelson Star, Seedy Saturday starts at 9:30 am until 1 p.m.
