Seeds of March

2023 edition of our Seedy Saturday events

A community spring event focused on seeds, sustainable gardens, farms, and food system here on the coast

Seedy Saturday is the Sunshine Coast’s annual community planting season kickoff event. It is always loaded with opportunities to connect with other garden enthusiasts and food producers on the Coast. You can see what it entailed in 2022 here.

At Seedy Saturday, you can access some of the best quality, non GMO, chemical free seeds, many that have been harvested by local growers and community members on the Sunshine Coast. Exchanging seeds keeps our community and ecosystem rich!

We bring you this annual event in partnership with the Sunshine Coast Seed Collective.
