Seedy Sunday in Sherwood Park

Join us for our 3rd Seedy Sunday in Sherwood Park !

"Come learn about gardening and food preserving from a lineup of speakers and information booths. Plus purchase heirloom seeds for the next gardening season."

I am thrilled to be assisting with this event these last 3 years, which is drawing more and more gardeners, from beginner to advanced!

Brandie Harrop, our Super Event Organizer, has arranged for a wonderful line-up of speakers and vendors! I won't be speaking this year asI'll be assisting through the day, as well as I myself, will be attending talks and shopping the vendors!  I'll be sourcing my seeds for my upcoming PLANT Nights "March, Seeding Naturally" and "April Seeding, Naturally" (register for these on my Events Calendar ).

I'll have a table with information on Sustainable Landscapes & Gardens, as well as sign-up for my upcoming programs (workshops, talks, walks, etc) and for those interested in private group events.

Join our facebook event Seedy Sunday in Sherwood Park to keep up on information about our Speakers and Vendors, as well as resources we post almost daily! (plus, we can gauge numbers too).

The event is Free Admission!
Thank you to Salisbury Greenhouse for the perfect venue, and carrying such a great variety of gardening supplies!

We are Bringing Nature Back (!)... in our yards and in growing healthy food for our families too! Stay connected with me on facebook at Nature's Elements - Sustainable Landscape Design & Nature Education

2016 Seedy Sunday in Sherwood Park FUN:
* Brandie Harrop (organizer) and I always have fun!
* I love speaking about gardening, and especially to a packed house!
* Kids had some fun outside too!
(though we hope the 2017 snow-melt won't interfere with parking)
