How time doth fly on winged feet! Even though this is the quiet time of the year, I find so many things to do. One of them, and the highlight of them all .. was to participate in Seedy Saturday, held at the Convention Centre, downtown Victoria, B.C.
This is my second year at volunteering in this huge event and what a wonderful garden-y atmosphere it is. So this year I went in early and took some photos before the crowds filled the room. And fill the room they did .. there was barely space to go from one wonderful booth to another.
Here is a beautiful poster for the Victoria Natural History Society, www.naturevictoria.ca
I picked up a few issues and they are full, cover to cover, of the most amazing natural events and I will be subscribing to this association. Absolutely everyone contributes selflessly to the furtherance of nature .. how can I not join.
And another very important table … http://www.seeds.ca/en.php
And this was a truly very important table .. http://farmlandprotection.ca/I am sure that many countries are involved in the same fight to protect agricultural lands from being fracked and abused. There were a few bumper stickers left and I was able to get one. This is so very important in every way.
Here is a list of the speakers from the last Seedy Saturday:
Twas a most lovely Saturday, despite the rain! I indulged in paid parking for the whole day, so that I could relax and wander the aisles freely without time restrictions . My gift to myself.
Happy Gardening everyone!
