PTBOPics & Coverage From Seedy Sunday

The 8th Annual Seed Sale and Exchange known as Seedy Sunday took place this past Sunday at George Street United Church.

Organizer Jillian Bishop from Urban Tomato Lady estimates that there were approximately 1,300 people that stopped into this year's event. Tomato seeds were a popular item from booth to booth, with a demand for all sorts of varieties in size and colour, and there were many questions surrounding growing tomato plants on balconies.

One of the revisions they made this year other than extending the hours was moving the seed exchange area into the kitchen to allow for more room for people to shop and trade with others.

Also, Jillian tells us that over $250 was raised for Seeds of Diversity.

Overall, it was a very bustling day as folks gathered what they needed to begin their gardening season. So wonderful to see so many people taking advantage of such a great event sharing the same love of gardening.
