The QB Seedy Saturday committee wish to extend a heartfelt Thank You to all the volunteers, vendors, speakers, businesses, Town of Qualicum Beach and to all the intrepid souls who ventured out in the snow to support Seedy Saturday on February 4th, 2017.
“Flourish & Nourish!” was the theme for 2017. The theme for February 3rd, 2018 is currently at the incubation stage. We’ll announce it later this fall. (2017)

What is Seedy Saturday?
It’s an event where you can buy plants and seeds that grow well in our area. You can also get ideas from experts in all aspects of gardening.
This list covers most of the activities you’ll find at the event:
- In the SEED SWAP room, you can share your saved seeds with other local gardeners, or just buy seeds others have saved (at very low cost).
- Local garden-related VENDORS have their seeds, plants, and related goods for sale.
- Expert SPEAKERS discuss many aspects of gardening.
- MASTER GARDENERS are on hand to help with your gardening problems.
- NURSERIES from the region are well represented with lots of specimens for you to choose from, or just to admire.
- SEED CATALOGUES are available.
- Enjoy the SHOOTS WITH ROOTS family program with your children.
- Buy a RAFFLE ticket to support the QBSS Association, and, perhaps win a great prize.
- Have a snack, lunch, or just a beverage at the SEEDY CAFE.
