Seeds of March is a community collaboration of spring events focused on sustainable gardens, farms, and food system here on the coast. It includes our 26th beloved Seedy Saturday Market, but so much more, including the Seed Exchange, local food, seed & garden vendors, workshops, ask-an-expert, fun activities for kids, and a hot lunch. Connect and network with long-lost neighbours!

All the Seeds of March events are perfect for any age, level of gardening experience or seed collecting. Bring the family, seeds to swap, and your garden wishlist!

March 5: “Gardening in Harmony” Quality Garden & Pet, Gibsons BC
How we garden is becoming vitally important as our needs change, and as the climate and world changes. With it, we must change too! Drop in to Quality Garden’s big Greenhouse to learn from several community organizations, who are there to share knowledge, instruction, and answer questions on how to garden in harmony with our environment. Interactive Q&A.
