Sooke’s Seedy Saturday kicks off gardening season

Sooke Food CHI presents ninth annual event on Feb. 23.

Seedy Saturday is hosted at Sooke Community Hall on Feb. 23, promoting community building and healthy gardening practices.

The community seed exchange event, organized by Sooke Food CHI, begins at 10 a.m.

The day showcases a range of seed and plant vendors, a seed exchange table, plus educational displays featuring information on everything from composting, to keeping bees, and children’s entertainment.

Admission is by donation, with a suggested amount of $5 to support the event and other Sooke Food CHI programs such as Grow a Row.

Attendees can also expect opportunities to buy tickets for unique and fun raffles.

This year the raffle donations will support Harmony Project Sooke, a non-profit society that provides musical instruments and instruction to youth in the region.

A healthy lunch with homemade cabbage rolls, perogies, pies, and ice cream is also available as a fundraiser for the Sooke Fall Fair.

Sooke held its first Seedy Saturday in 2010.
