Scarborough Seedy Saturday and Green Fair – Biodiversity of the Community

The following is information my office received in regards to a community event.  I am publicising it at the sender’s request for residents who are interested in attending.

Saturday, March 22, 2014, 11:00 P.M. – 3 P.M., Scarborough, ON

Come to the SCARBOROUGH SEEDY SATURDAY and GREEN FAIR on Saturday March 22 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event takes place at Blessed Cardinal Newman Catholic High School, 100 Brimley Road South (south of Kingston Road).

Learn how to live more sustainably, exchange seeds with other seed savers, buy heirloom and organic seeds or join a workshop on composting or growing food in small spaces. Do you have a gardening question? Then stop by one of our local garden clubs’ tables and ask an expert!

This day promises to be fun for everyone. Over 30 tables will include heirloom seed vendors, green exhibits, bee products, worm composting, backyard gardening, garden associations and regional organizations such as LEAF, the TRCA and Rouge Park .Get tips on how to be greener in your home and neighbourhood. Bring the kids – they can plant a seed or build a bat/bird house.

Be a steward and bring in your used electronics for recycling!

Our themes this year are Family Farming and Water and Energy. The UN declared 2014 as the International Year of Family Farming: Saving Seeds, Protecting Food Sovereignty. Also in conjunction with World Water Day, information will be available on Water and Energy.

The Fair is hosted by the Stewards of the Earth at St. Agatha Catholic School, the Treehuggers at Blessed Cardinal Newman Catholic High School , the Eco Club at Jean Vanier Secondary School and Seeds of Diversity.
