North Bay 2011 Seed Exchange & Eco Fair!

Yay! :D

North Bay Heritage Gardeners, St Andrew’s United Church, North Bay Horticultural Society, The North Bay Master Gardeners, & Near North Locavores presents:


Come join us on Saturday February 26th, 2011 from 1 pm to 4pm at 366 Cassells Street/St Andrew’s United Church for North Bay’s second annual Seed Exchange & Eco Fair! This is a free event that has parking and public transit near by.

Gardening is a very rewarding pastime! It is a great way to be physically active while providing affordable fresh produce in your diet, creating habitat for wildlife, or simply beautifying your surroundings. We will have materials and information available for all types of growing situations and experience levels.

Get a head start on the 2011 gardening season at the Seed Exchange. You can trade seeds that you have saved (please make sure that you label your package with as much info as possible, including the variety name and how many seeds are in each package) or purchase seeds for 25 cents each package. Ornamentals and edibles are welcome.

Expand your knowledge at our free workshops for gardeners of all ages and skill-sets and there will be plenty of fun for children too with parental-supervised activities and crafts.

Stop by and visit the vendors at the Eco Fair to learn more about local organizations or get some shopping done at the various environmentally-conscious businesses that will be attending.

If you can’t find what you are looking for at the seed exchange, do not worry, as there will be vendors selling seeds, and other gardening supplies too! There will be commercial seeds to choose from and The Master Gardeners and The North Bay Horticultural Society will be selling seeds as fundraisers for their organizations.

For more info you can contact Monica of North Bay Heritage Gardeners at (705) 472- 4006 or heritage.gardeners(at)
