Event: Seedy Saturday in London, March 07 2009

Oh, so much to catch up on!  My life has been too busy these days to find time to write about it.  In addition to dissertation writing, working 3 part-time jobs, job and house hunting, and training and exercising the four (!) dogs, plus keeping on top of my food “pets” (sprouts, yogurt, sourdough, sauerkraut etc.) I’ve been attending food events such as a fermenting foods workshop, a couple of conferences and the Raj Patel talk.  I always take notes and hopefully will find time in the not too distant future to write more about them.  In the meantime, here’s a great event that I attended last year and am happy to see repeated this spring:

Siloam United Church is at 1240 Fanshawe Park Road East.  That is on the north side of Fanshawe Parkway, just west of Highbury Ave.  

I really enjoyed this event last year.  The talks were very helpful and there were many vendors with great garden stuff to sell, including Hawthorn Farm Organic Seeds, worm composting (I can’t find the vendor’s name but will post if I do), seed catalogues, The City Farming Project and so on. There was also a seed exchange table, where people bring extra seeds they have and take new ones.  I ended up with some really interesting items!  Entry to the event is only $5, and they had a very reasonably priced ($2-3) lunch available for those staying all day.  I expect this year’s event will be similar and am very much looking forward to it.  Hope to see you there!
