Ladner Seedy Saturday- A Huge Success!

I want to thank all the wonderful volunteers, vendors and the community of Delta for supporting the Ladner Community Garden at its first Seedy Saturday and Garden Expo event. A special thanks goes to the Ladner Baptist church for letting us use their facility to host this event. The church also served coffee and muffins which we all loved. The event ran smoothly and there was a fabulous assortment of products for all gardeners.
We were up before dawn and ready to set up by 7am yesterday morning. Displays like this one supporting USC Canada were easy to put up. I loved the world food map. We had lots of other displays which I will post about this week. So much to say about all the good things that went on yesterday,the new partnerships made,new friendships and the conversation.
Our vendors rolled in almost as soon as we had the tables set up. They quickly went to work setting up their tables.
The seed swap was a bit hit. I had one lady bring in heirloom seeds from the 1800's that their family had been growing here for years.I loved hearing the history behind the seeds.
It was a busy day but we all left the building planning our next Seedy Saturday.So watch out Delta, we will be back with a bigger and better event next year.
