Kingston Seedy Saturday is hosted by Kingston Area Seed System Initiative (KASSI), a grassroots organization founded by local farmers, backyard and market gardeners, and concerned community members. They promote responsible stewardship of our seed heritage.
We will be there with our Kricklewood Farm Sunflower Oil, Goat Milk Soap, Beeswax Candles and of course Sunflower Seeds!
This event is a chance to celebrate with a fun community gathering, in happy anticipation of the growing season. The highlight of the day is always the swap table, where selection changes throughout the day as people bring in their treasured seeds. To participate in the swap, bring your locally-adapted, open-pollinated, genetically-diverse, organically-grown (!) seeds in envelopes or jars that are labeled with the variety name and the date that the plant was grown. There are presentations throughout the day on how to save seeds and build a local seed system, the chance to network with other community groups, and to attend workshops on anything from worm-composting to intellectual property rights.
