Thanks to All for Your Support at Ladner Seedy Saturday

Ladner Seedy Saturday
Alex from West Coast Seeds 

Last weekend we held another successful Seedy Saturday and Garden Expo. People arrived as early as 9:00am trying to get in early. Lucky for us it was a nice day out so no one froze to death.  The parking filled up in the first few minutes. Thanks to the flagging staff who helped our customers find the overload parking and the shuttle bus to the event. I have had nothing but good comments about the staff.

The vendors were kept busy all day long selling everything from seeds to plants and garden accessories. We strive to have something for everyone.

Our speakers did some amazing talks this year. We learned from Egan Davis about growing plants in sand and how well it works. Who knew? This type of gardening is taking place in Sweden and is very successful. It turns out the plants need little watering once established.

David Catzel talks about seeds

David Catzel talked about seed saving and breeding. I learned that I need a lot more growing space to do breeding. Growing 200 plants to select seed from is a huge task.
Conway Lum talked about fruit trees and had a question and answer period. He could have answered questions for an hour as there was lots of interest. We all love to grow food including fruit.
Our last speaker was Randy Shore from the Vancouver Sun. Randy shared excerpts from his book and answered many garden questions.
The Kids Zone had a colouring and planting project upstairs and seem to be well attended.

We want to thank our vendors, customers, speakers, the Corporation of Delta and the volunteers for making this such a special day. We will be back again next year.
