An activity for the whole family

 Imprimer   Envoyer 

Seedy Saturday celebrates gardening on February 21 at the Sawyerville Hotel-Auberge with speakers, workshops and the pruning of fruit trees in the Sawyerville Community Garden. And it's not just for adults. The organisers, Chantal Bolduc and Dominique Guay, had the whole family in mind when they planned skating, sliding, and even story-reading at the Sawyerville Library.

The Community Garden team has prepared an unforgettable day for gardeners in the area and those from away, too. Activities will be in several different spots concurrently. Experts on various topics will take turns speaking during the day at the Sawyerville Hotel-Auberge. Presentations will be about the living soil, about taking inspiration from the forest to create a thriving garden, about combining usefulness with pleasure, and about germination. After lunch are other presentations. One is a training presentation for beekeepers, with materials for sale on site. Another on heritage seeds and how and why to become a seed saver and create a sharing club will be in English. The other presentations are in French.

Various kiosks will also offer supplies and information about heritage seeds, specialized gardening materials, garden furniture, local products, and more. Workshops include building bird houses, making Abenaki baskets from ash wood, indoor seedbeds, herbalism, and germinations. The kiosks will be in the building that used to be the Caisse Desjardins. A team of horses and wagon will shuttle visitors from one site to another, including the Community Garden.

Chantal Bolduc said that the Garden has about 30 members, and that organizing this festival with people from the area helps to create a sense of belonging. Besides local participants, she expects visitors to come from outside the area, too, for the event. "A lot of people from Sherbrooke or elsewhere come to see us. We're contributing to the green development of Sawyerville," she said, and noted that some visitors could eventually be tempted to come and settle in this small community.
The organisers expect good participation from the public. Persons wishing to have more information can consult the Facebook page of the Sawyerville Community.
