Seedy Saturday Garden Fest is where gardeners come each year to SHOP, LEARN  and GROW.

Now in our 13th year, our regulars say that Seedy Saturday is the best way to beat the winter blues and kick off the gardening season!

  • a day of fun, shopping and learning for novice to advanced home gardeners.
  • great deals for those seeking seeds, supplies, decor, local food, and other products
  • the opportunity to meet and chat with local community groups or get advice from horticultural experts
  • a large community seed swap
  • if you want to grow any plants or trees and especially if you like the idea of growing your own food, this is the place to learn how to do it and buy what you need!

Here’s the list of 2020 Seedy Saturday Vendors and Exhibitors registered (as of Feb 6). More added every week!

The price of admission includes all of the above PLUS the opportunity to sit in on these three educational and interesting talks throughout the day:

10:30am – 11:30am – What We Used to Kill; Caterpillars & their food 2020 –  Sean James

How to enhance our gardens to provide habitat for these creatures. Host plants and garden maintenance will be topics of discussion.

12:00pm – 1:00pm– For the Love of Trees –  Julie Dorssers, Master Gardener

These living beings are the backbone of the garden and our environment.  Come learn why we love them.

1:30pm – 2:30pm – Invasive Plant Species – Brenda Gallagher of Upper Thames Conservation

They are here, there, everywhere!  Let us show you which plants are invasive and how you can help.
