Get Outta Town Bus Tours with Red Arrow presents:
Calgary Seedy Saturday Bus Tour
Presented by the Galt Museum & Archives, in collaboration with the Lethbridge and District Horticultural Society.
To register please call 403-320-3954
This spring, travel in comfort with our bus tour partner Red Arrow Motorcoach to Calgary’s Seedy Saturday, which celebrates open-pollinated seeds. The heart of Seedy Saturday is the swapping and sale of seeds or other propagation material for public-domain plant cultivars that have been preserved or developed by individuals or families. These are variously described as landraces, folk varieties, farmer varieties and heritage seed. Calgary Seedy Saturday helps maintain irreplaceable genetic diversity by offering non-hybridized, non-GMO varieties of seeds.
