Seedy Sunday a head start

Spring’s just around the corner, that means it’s time to start thinking about growing things

Spring’s just around the corner, that means it’s time to start thinking about growing things; and that means you might want to take in Seedy Sunday, March 20 at the Cowichan Tribes Gymnasium Si’em Lelum at 5574 River Road in Duncan.

“What better way to ring in the new season than by stocking up on locally adapted seeds, garden starts, perennials, and gardening advice,” said Vanessa Goodall of Cowichan Green Community.

“For those who are waiting in anticipation to start your veggie garden, Cowichan Green Community invites you to celebrate the first day of spring at the Duncan Seedy Sunday.”

The event brings together more than 35 local seed and garden vendors with hordes of green thumbs keen to get a head start on the growing season. There will also be a seed exchange, community booths and activities for kids.

There will be four gardening workshops at Seedy Sunday this year:

• Water Wise Gardening with David Pink of Warm Land Irrigation and Fresh Start Edibles;

• Drought & Deer Tolerant Plant workshops with Joan Wynden of Garden Lore;

• Plants Create Wondrous Music with Devmurti Khalsa of Nature Spirit Permaculture;

• Seed Saving 101 with Joy Story of Grow Food Garden Journals and Edible Garden Designs.

Admission to Seedy Sunday is $2. Cowichan Green Community members and children 13 and under get in for free. For more information contact the Cowichan Green Community at 250-748-8506 or
