The Saskatoon Seed Library is planting it’s seed garden during the Nature City Festival to celebrate the importance of protecting locally adapted seed varieties. Come out and learn how to plant and save seeds with us! We will also feature the water saving gardening techniques used by the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre Garden Patch. We will be growing the Blaue Hilde Purple Pole Bean, the Green Crop bush bean, the Whippersnapper Cherry tomato, the Melfort beefsteak tomato, the Siberian sandwich tomato, cilantro, and Black Seeded Simpson lettuce. You can also join the Saskatoon Seed Library for $2 and this will give you access to the six seed varieties in our inventory. We will have seed packets available for you to take at the event. This event is fun and free and families are welcome. We hope to see you there!
Protecting the world’s seed biodiversity is a critical part of building resilience in a changing world. This event will teach people how to plant seeds and inspire people to think about where their seeds come from. We hope to build a network of local small-scale seed savers in Saskatoon.
