Ladner Seedy Saturday Fun

There was so much to see at Ladner Seedy Saturday, I have to post some more pictures from our event.  It wasn't just seed and plant companies at our event, we also had different services.

Bartlett Tree Experts came to the event to give advice on tree pruning. I have used them extensively in my garden and have always been happy with their work. 

Pebble Creations came with their nature inspired art, jewelry and cute ladybug stones. If you were looking for a gift for Valentines day, you could find it here.

 The Portal was also at Ladner Seedy Saturday. We are excited to hear they have just moved into the old Ladner Dental clinic where they now hold workshops and sell herbal products. Their table was certainly busy on Saturday.

Ian Tait participated in our Ladner Seedy Saturday by talking to people about the importance of having a bee friendly garden with his Feed the Bees campaign. There is nothing better than having bees in the garden and its so easy to find the right plants to attract them. Ian also didn't hesitate to jump in and help us with our prize draws  with his broadcaster voice. I know I sure couldn't have done it so thanks again Ian. 

 The Corporation of Delta's engineering department attended our event. They had a wonderful display on composting and answered residents questions. Thanks goes to the city for being such a good partner with the Ladner Community Garden.

Langley Environmental Partners Society had an interesting display. In Langley they have a manure storage program and a buyback of the said manure for gardeners. I am thinking this would be a wonderful project for Delta to start.

All Things Organic brought their vermi-composting supplies to Seedy Saturday.They sell worm factories which break down kitchen waste to compost for your garden. We love our compost!

Saturday was a busy day bringing in new and seasoned gardeners to shop and get advice for their gardens. 

Thanks to Japadog for catering our event. I had never seen a food cart in Ladner before so it was exciting to have them come out from Vancouver during Food Cart Week. Now this is not just a hot dog but a gourmet one at that. We hope to see them back next year.
