Seedy Saturdays

Seedy Saturdays are part of a world-wide movement for community-ownership of seed, based on the idea that access to seed is a human right. Everyone is welcome to come and bring saved or leftover seed to share and swap. Seed leftover at the end of the event goes to the PEI Seed Library Network and is distributed free across the island in the spring.

There are currently 2 events scheduled:

Charlottetown Seedy Saturday: February 25th: 2:00-3:30pm

Montague Seedy Saturday: March 4th

The Montague Seedy Saturday will begin at 2pm with a screening of award winning documentary, Seed: the Untold Story. The film will end at 3:30, and the Seed Swap will begin!

Stay tuned, as more Seedy Saturdays (and Sundays!) will be announced soon! For more information contact

About Laura Weatherbie

Laura is responsible for the ‘serious’ stuff that goes into publishing, like the money, printing, distribution, policies, YAWN…. Coincidentally, she’s also responsible for any random margin scribbles, scowls, and general gruffness around the Salty environs. Underneath it all though, she’s an affable character with a dry wit, a few West Coast Swing skills, and a cool grey convertible.
