Ladner Seedy Saturday and Garden Expo Update


The plans for Ladner Seedy Saturday and Garden Expo are almost complete. The Seedy Saturday and Garden Expo will be held on February 9, 2013 at Ladner Baptist Church from 10-3. The church is located at 5624 Ladner Trunk Road here in the village of Ladner, BC just  a short 20 minute drive south of Vancouver.
When you arrive at Ladner Seedy Saturday and Garden Expo you will enter at the side door on the west side of the building. There is lots of free parking and handicap parking as well.


As you enter the church there is a fireside room where we will be having our presentations.
Next to the fireside room is a large gymnasium that will be filled with vendors selling seeds, plants and garden accessories or services. We will even have a children's table where kids can make a craft to take home.


Admission to the event is free but if you would like to donate to the Ladner Community Garden, that would be great. We grow food for the South Delta Food bank and can always use seed money. Last year we were able to donate 300 pounds of food to those in need and we hope to do much better in 2013. There is nothing better than paying it forward. Most of us have more than we need.
So who will be at our Seedy Saturday and Garden Expo?

Don Bruchet will be speaking at 1130am on 'How To Get Your Seeds Started'. Don has lots of experience growing from seed and his talks are always well attended.


In the afternoon, Andrea Bellamy, author of 'Sugar Snaps and Strawberries' will be speaking at 1pm sharp. Andrea will be doing a presentation and a hands on workshop about 'Guerrilla Gardening' and how to make seed bombs. Guerrilla gardening is the illicit act of making a neglected space more beautiful. Come listen to Andrea as she recruits us all to her fun hobby.


The Ladner Baptist Church will also have their famous coffee bar open and early coffee for the vendors  and volunteers as they arrive.
Today's exciting news is we have a food cart coming to Ladner! Can you believe it? Yes, Japadog will be at the event all day with its gourmet selection of hotdogs.
So bring your family to the second Ladner Seedy Saturday and Garden Expo. Its a fun day with lots to see and do.
Update- We are so excited about our event in just two days! The weather is looking like we may even have some sun. We will have some Sea Soil for sale at the event, lots of seeds and plants to get you in the garden soon. We are busy getting some herb, vegetable and flower seeds to swap at our seed swap table. Do you have unused seed to trade? Place them  in a sealed envelope and bring to our seed swap table to exchange for something you haven't grown before. Be sure to label your seeds. Master gardeners from VanDusen Botanical Gardens will be on hand to answer all your gardening questions.
