Heirloom Festival - Withrow Park
On Sept. 6th, I attended the Withrow Park Heirloom Festival. The Seeds of Diversity booth was stocked with information. I was lucky enough to have Joseph there to talk about Pollinators, and Dagmar, who brought her amazing collection of heirloom potatoes, as well as her vast knowledge of seeds. There was beautiful and diverse vegetables available. brought in from farms all over the region.
Despite the threat of rain there were many shoppers from the neighbourhood wanting to talk veggies, seeds, gardens, pollination and everything in between. Live music, children's events, and Wayne Roberts talking about his new book made this a wonderful event. Thanks to Roberta and the Withrow folks for having us.
