Toronto Seedy Exchange Area

Thanks to all of the wonderful volunteers who made this event possible . . . . Here are some photos from the successful event. We made over $300 in donations which means that over 2000 packets of seeds were taken for donation, and I would estimate that at least 2000 other packages . . . . .

Photos From Seedy Saturday Toronto

Wow. Take a look at how many people were in the room at this time . . . . . . What an amazing turn-out. The whole day was fabulous. Lots of people coming out to buy seeds and get inspired by Spring . . .

Here is a photo of my little urbantomato booth lost in the land of seed buyers . . .

Seedy Saturday

This years event was a HUGE success. It was a beautiful sunny day, and the new Wychwood Barns location was full of natural light, and packed with people wanting to welcome in Spring by buying seeds and planning their gardens! By half way through the day there had already been 1000 people come through one of the four entrances!
Thanks to everyone at the Stop, Foodshare, and TCGN who worked really hard to make this event so great. Also thanks to the amazing volunteers who worked tirelessly throughout the day. The Seed Exchange Area was amazing. There must have been at least 2000 packets trading hands throughout the day. The room was packed at all times, and an ever-changing and diverse selection of seeds covered the tables.
Pictures to follow soon . . . . . . I am now officially inspired by Spring, and amazed and impressed by peoples interest in seeds.

more potato photos - a little blurry - sorry!

I was cutting up these beautiful potatoes that were taken from my garden this summer. They are gorgeous from the outside, but when you cut them open, a whole other world of beauty appears
