We will be posting the dates for shows in the spring.  They are:

Calgary – Mar. 21

Edmonton – Mar. 22

Stony Plain – Mar. 28

Sherwood Park – Mar. 29. 

Check all locations and times by Googling Seedy Saturdays and Sundays in Alberta or checking http://www.seeds.ca and going to the listing there.

 As you know the catalogue is now online and you can download it or get someone who loves you very much to do it for you.  As I do not get a lot of requests for print copies, I have to do these myself at a huge cost, plus $2 for the postage. 

I will mail it out if you send the $7 to Box 127 Cherhill, Alberta, T0E0J0.  Sorry about that. If you can, I recommend you download it.  I have now updated all the pages here also, so that should be what we have.  If you are looking for something specific, as always you can call or email.  WE DO NOT DO BULK QUANTITIES – no we don’t have 5 metric tonnes of seed for anyone, as we would be out of business in a hurry that way!

We are small seed growers and sell in packets for gardeners and hobbyists alike. 🙂

Also, we support all indigenous efforts for local food sovereignty.  If you are a seed keeper or are starting a community garden for your Indigenous community feel free to contact me about coming to teach, or a donation of the seeds I have that are traditional foods.  I will do this in the hope that you will save your own seeds and have them blessed by the Elders for all.  I understand this is coming full circle and it is heartening to see.

“Why do farmers farm, given their economic adversities on top of the many frustrations and difficulties normal to farming? And always the answer is: “Love. They must do it for love.” Farmers farm for the love of farming. They love to watch and nurture the growth of plants. They love to live in the presence of animals. They love to work outdoors. They love the weather, maybe even when it is making them miserable. They love to live where they work and to work where they live. If the scale of their farming is small enough, they like to work in the company of their children and with the help of their children. They love the measure of independence that farm life can still provide. I have an idea that a lot of farmers have gone to a lot of trouble merely to be self-employed to live at least a part of their lives without a boss.”

  1. Good Afternoon. I couldn’t find an email address to contact so I thought a comment would work the same! The Raymond ag Society is hosting a homesteading learning weekend for the small shareholder looking to start or improve their livestock for self sufficiency. We are also looking for presenters on heirloom seeds and their use for the small farmer, how they fit, how they can be used to produce food for the family and livestock. I came upon your Alberta seed company after some searching online. Would you be interested in presenting on Saturday, March 29 ? It will be a small group between 50-100 people over the day might attend. This won’t be a forum for gmo versus non gmo – it is a positive time to encourage people to grow, healthy land, healthy feed/food and healthy animals/people! Please let me know if you have any questions.Check out our Facebook page Raymond and District Ag Society or contact me for more information. thanks. Tobi Lyons, tobiannelyons@gmail.com

    1. Hi Tobi- that sounds so great and I would live to come another time, but I have an engagement in Sherwood Park that day for their Seedy Sunday. Any time you are doing something like this, try to check those events first. I would happily come another time.
