Seedy Saturday in Calgary



If you are new to gardening and permaculture in Calgary and you are trying to find the best seeds for your garden then look no further…

Seedy Saturday is a market event held one day a year each spring in Calgary that should not be missed. In 2016 the date is Saturday March 19th. Seed producers from around the country come to share the best genetics for our local, admittedly chilly, climate.

Gardening

We spend the last two days taking the seedlings and putting them into larger containers with a ninja soil mix.  This way the seedlings will be easy for you to hold in the window until the garden is ready.

We really hope to see you there.  Come by and say hi!

Also Ninja Andrew will be presenting at 1:30pm.  Controlling the rain – a sustainable garden booster.

Lots of love!

A thousand bows,

Leaf Ninjas
