Do you have a NEED for SEED? Well, this event is for you! Community Food Connections Association's 8th annual seed exchange is taking place April 23rd from 2-4pm! We are partnering with the fine folks at the Medicine Hat Public Library to create a fun-filled event packed with gardening presentations, hands-on demonstrations, passionate local organizations and door prizes!
This year's guest speakers include Curtis Clark from Green Island Farming Co., Roxanne Doerksen from TRAD Worm Industries Ltd and Whitney Renney from 3 Little Birds Tree Care Inc.
For those who are not familiar, Seedy Saturdays/Sundays are annual seed exchange events that take place across North America each spring. The first Seedy Saturday was organized in Vancouver, Canada, in 1990! The purpose is to bring gardeners of all experience levels together to share seeds (saved or purchased), teach environmentally friendly garden practices, meet local groups working to preserve and promote local ecosystems and build excitement for the coming growing season.
If you think your organization would be a good fit and would like a display table (it's free!), or you'd like to volunteer to help out, email email@example.com.
Transit + Parking: As we all know, the Library is one of the best venues in our community, but parking is limited.
We are asking people planning to attend to consider walking, biking or taking public transit if possible. There are bike racks available outside of the library and across the street at the Esplanade. Medicine Hat Transit (MHT) Routes 31/30, 53 and 61 run every 30 minutes on Sundays and Routes 10, 11, 20, 21, 22 are available through MHT On-Demand Service. Rout 46 does not run on Sundays. The library is an 8 minute walk from the downtown transit terminal. Go to https://www.medicinehat.ca/.../roads-parking.../transit.aspx for additional transit information.
If driving is a must, we ask those who are able to park outside of the Library parking lot to keep the limited parking spots available for Library patrons. Street parking is available in the area and the Esplanade (surface), the Transit Terminal and Towne Square all have parking lots that are free on Sundays.
