Seedy Saturdays and Seedy Sundays are Back!

If you've been reading this newsletter for a few years, you know that we get very excited about Seedy Saturdays and Seedy Sundays at this time of year. You should too!

These annual community events showcase local seeds and seed savers, and give gardeners a wonderful occasion to meet and learn together. For the past few years those meetings have been mostly on-line, but we're seeing a lot more in-person events coming up, all across the country.

Check our list at and look for a Seedy Saturday or Seedy Sunday event near you. Or join an online event anywhere!


Winter Webinar Series

Tired of winter? So are we. But there's one more great winter benefit coming: the Winter Webinar Series from the Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security. The Bauta team has been busy arranging a whole series of interesting and useful sessions just for you!

Youth Explore Food System Careers

What do you know about careers in the Canadian food sector? Did you know that there are hundreds of possible job titles, many thousands of job openings each year, and endless paths to lead you there?

As part of Seeds of Diversity's Youth in Food Systems program, we have created an interview series project that allows volunteers to ask professionals working in the agricultural and food sector questions about their jobs and experiences, and allows for learning about food systems careers. Youth volunteers are responsible for selecting individuals to interview, researching, creating questions, reaching out to interviewees, setting up virtual interviews, conducting the interviews, and writing blog posts.


Seed Libraries Across Canada

Inspired by the article about Fernie’s Seed Library in our previous edition, we’ve compiled an overview of some other seed libraries that exist across Canada. This is in no way meant to be an exhaustive list, as there are dozens of seed libraries in dozens of communities across the country. If you know of any others that you’d like us to highlight, let us know! We’ll share more examples in future e-bulletins.
