Innisfil Seedy Saturday includes seed vendors, local community groups and businesses, a community seed swap, expert talks and demonstrations, children’s crafts and other memorable activities.

Not to be missed: Exhibitors offering seeds for purchase or free-of-charge including our popular Community Seed Swap. Buy a rain barrel, bird seed, wild-crafted tea and so much more. Learn from our experts about edible foraging close to home and growing food using hydroponics, and bring all your gardening questions to our local Master Gardeners. Delicious lunch available onsite for purchase from Innisfil’s Pasta Plus.

“The continued success of the Innisfil Seed Library and our community’s thirst for learning about growing seeds at home and taking care of our planet keeps growing,” says Bridget Indelicato, founder and organizer of the Innisfil Seed Library and Innisfil Seedy Saturday. “Our event promises to cater to everyone whether they’re here to learn, play or shop.”
