It may not look like it, but there’ s soil under a lot of that snow and that’ s having some gardeners thinking about this year’s harvest.

If they haven’t already, then they certainly will during the free annual Seedy Saturday event this weekend.

Seedy Saturday is an opportunity to learn about gardening, local food and the environment,” said Kathleen Sheppard, executive director with Environment Lethbridge in a release.

“Everything is free, including workshops on worm composting, alternatives to backyard gardening and demonstrations of traditional garden tools.”

On top of the free tips and tricks, attendees can gather and sort through the selection of free seeds to take home.

“The seed swap is a highlight of Seedy Saturday events,” said Sheppard. “We invite everyone to bring their extra seeds to trade for something new. Gardeners who don’t have seeds to trade are welcome to take seeds home to try as well.”

This year’s event is hosted by Environment Lethbridge and Lethbridge Bee Enthusiasts and takes place in the LSCO gymnasium from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. For more information, visit http://www.enviromentlethbridge.ca/seedysaturday.
