The first Seedy Saturday seed swap was held in Vancouver in 1990. Today, there are over 100 Seedy Saturday and Sunday events each year in Canada. A seed swap is an event where growers exchange seeds from plants that they have grown themselves, meet kindred spirits, and confirm that, by preferring home-saved seeds to commercial ones they are helping the environment. The swap is free. If you have no seeds to swap, there are always extra in exchange for a donation. The Canadian charitable organization Seeds of Diversity has taken on an organizational role, providing guidance and publicity for these grass-roots events.
