Do you have leftover seeds from your seed swap or seed library?

We can help circulate them to our representatives who will put them to good use at other community seed swaps. Every week during the winter, we mail books and table-top materials to Seedy Saturdays and Seedy Sundays all across the country, so we can easily include your leftover seeds in our packages. Our volunteers will make sure the seeds get to their local seed swap tables and seed libraries, so you'll know that they won't go to waste.

Mail your leftover seeds to:

Thirty-two years ago, our then-Head Interpreter, Sharon Rempel, founded a little something called “Seedy Saturday†that has since become an incredibly popular way, across Canada, to share seeds, knowledge and community.

The Grist Mill and Gardens Historic Site invites you to nearby Cawston Community Hall on Saturday, February 25nd, from 11am – 3pm, for our very own Seedy Saturday to exchange seeds and share knowledge.

Be sure to start looking through your seed boxes and cupboards to see if you have anything you’d like to share with others as part of our big seed swap table. Also, please invite anyone else you know who might be interested in this event.

ADMISSION IS BY DONATION with partial proceeds going to support the exceptional work of Seeds of Diversity, and in particular their Canadian Seed Library–a collection of over 2300 regionally-adapted and rare seed varieties–some of which have a very close connection with our site.

Presenters, vendors and info tables include:
