There may still be lots of snow on the ground, but the Sudbury Horticultural Society is already anticipating the gardening season with its fifth annual Seedy Sunday seed swap.

The free event takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Parkside Centre.

Sudburians can come out and swap the seeds they’ve saved from their gardens. No seeds, no problem. Seed vendors will also be on site selling many different varieties.

“Get excited about gardening and the warmer days ahead,” said the event's co-ordinator, Hermina Smatlanek. “This year, there are even more exhibitors, activities, and guest speakers at the Parkside Centre.”

Seedy Sunday is celebrated around the world and is an event that encourages people to participate in the age-old traditions of seed saving and seed trading (or swapping).

These events are typically a good place to pick up open-pollinated, heirloom, or heritage seeds. Although the Sudbury Seedy Sunday event emphasizes food varieties of seeds, a wide range of flower seeds will also be available.

A number of seed vendors, retail vendors, and other organizations will be on site, displaying their products and programs. Several presentations will also take place over the course of the day on a number of gardening topics.

The Horticultural Society and Master Gardeners will be on site to answer all your gardening questions. Delicious locally prepared food will be available, as well as a children’s area to keep the little ones busy.
