“Seedy Saturday” —  Help Grow Local Food Security! 

Saturday, October 16, 9am-2pm

October 16th is “Seedy Saturday” at Transition Fidalgo’s booth at the Farmers’ Market. Come on down and we’ll help get you started on the adventure of saving your own seeds. (Masks required, please)

Already have seeds that need to be cleaned and stored? Bring them with you! We’ll be doing seed-cleaning demos and you can join in the fun. (For some extra fun, we’ll have on hand a special treat for the kids — a corn-shucking machine from Gaia Rising Farm.)

Why save seed? Back in the day seed-saving was common, and we believe it’s beyond time to revive the practice here on our island. Climate impacts such as more intense storms, fires, floods, and new insect populations (as well as pandemics!) can easily break down food supply chains. It’s just good sense to grow a diversity of seeds adapted to our own special climate and soils, and to depend less on corporate providers and tenuous supply chains. And did we mention seed-saving is also fun, frugal, and fulfilling?

Hope to seed you on October 16th!


“Share the Bounty” Produce Stands!

Transition Fidalgo and Friends has three “Share the Bounty” stands offering free, fresh
produce to our local community. Gardeners are encouraged to drop off surplus fruits
and veggies to help those who would welcome the food.

Where are the stands? Note: the stands will be back up late spring 2022
— 2509 H Avenue, the Warren Carr residence
— Entrance to the Library on 10th St.
— Harbor House at 719 Q Ave.
