Seedy Saturday draws many green thumbs in Port Alberni

Char’s Landing was the place to be last Saturday



Char’s Landing was the place to be on Saturday, March 16, especially for those who have a green thumb.

At the second annual Seedy Saturday event, there were seeds, plants, food and tons of information—just what is needed to bring colour back into the season after a winter of blah. I couldn’t resist buying some really cool tulips, stargazer lily and more. Others were walking around with their arms filled with plants.

It was perfect timing to get ready for the official start of spring on Wednesday, March 20.
