More about Seedy Saturday 2020
Seedy Saturday Garden Fest is where gardeners come each year to LEARN, SHOP 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!
The $5 price of admission includes all of the above PLUS the opportunity to sit in on these three educational and interesting talks throughout the day:
