This annual event has been occurring around Canada since 1989 when Sharon Rempel, the creator of Seedy Saturday, decided to bring the community together to share stories and swap seeds in Vancouver. For the last 22 years, seedy Saturday and Sunday events have promoted the idea of seeds being the heart of food security in every community.

Seed savers are encouraged to attend exchange and sell seeds. Pre-registration is recommended but not required.
