According to StatsCan, gardening is second only to walking as the most popular active leisure activity in the country. After a dip to record-low temperatures, gardeners who are longing for spring can get a head start on the season!

and Kitchener Master Gardeners

Saturday, Feb. 21 from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Seedy Saturday celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. From its beginnings in Vancouver in 1990, there are now more than 100 Seedy Saturday or Sunday events across Canada.

This year’s Kitchener event includes seminars on organic and heirloom vegetables, seed saving, healthy soil and more. Keynote speaker Dugald Cameron will share his knowledge of summer flowering bulbs and exotic flowers from
9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

See the complete schedule of seminars. The event also includes a seed exchange, vendors and exhibitors.

While you’re here, be sure to check out the exhibit in the Art Gallery – A Year of Flowers by local artist Craig Musselman.


The day finishes with a documentary film in the Theatre at Central Library: Good Food, Bad Food, which begins at 2 p.m.

While you’re visiting, pick up a few gardening resources and start planning!
