Almonte Seedy Saturday Feb. 8

ALMONTE – Get your seeds ready before spring sneaks up on you at the fifth annual Almonte Seedy Saturday.

“The fifth Annual Almonte Seedy Saturday is fast approaching and like the daffodil, Seedy Saturdays are the first glimpse of spring,” organizers released in a statement. “It’s a welcome delight for gardeners and foodies alike. Come sow your seeds this spring and dig into this action-packed day.”

Meet up with some new and old friends. Participate in the seed exchange by giving away what you don’t need and taking home some things you do.

“Stock up your seed collections with the help of our quality, local seed vendors from all over the Ottawa Valley,” organizers said. “Scoop up some of the delicious preserves, foodie bundles and artisan products. Dibble through the plethora of unique and quality garden products and find yourself the perfect accoutrement to add to your garden expressions.

Make a day of it and stay for an enticing homemade brunch from the Civitan Hall’s Canteen. Get inspired by some local horticulture clubs or excellent speakers offering free seminars every hour.

“And if you start feeling stuck in the mud, ask for help and expert’s advice offered at the Master Gardener’s table,” organizers said. “We look forward to seeing you there.

New vendors and volunteers accepted this year. For more info, please contact Johvi Leeck at or 613-256-0486.
