Seedy Sunday is a chance to learn about gardening, local food and the environment. The annual event put on by Environment Lethbridge will feature 18 local businesses as exhibitors.
Kathleen Sheppard, the executive director of the organization, says more people are hoping to learn about growing their own food as the cost of living continues to rise.
“I think there’s been a lot of interest in gardening coming out of that pandemic. A lot of people kind of got started, and now, as you say, with the inflation being high, people are sort of looking at different options. And Seedy Sunday, really, if you haven’t gardened before, or maybe you have gardened but you’ve struggled, this is a great way to come down and talk to some people who have some expertise. So we’re going to have the Lethbridge Horticulture Society will be there. We have local arborists. We have an exhibitor who’s an expert in soil. So it’s a really great way to get started.”
Seedy Sunday will take place at Casa on April 2nd from 1-4pm.
