Seedy Saturday

Online Seedy Saturday - March 2021

Join us online throughout the month of March to learn about creative landscaping, urban gardening, sustainability, pollinators and more through speaker sessions, DIY videos or by connecting with a local expert at our virtual Green Expo. 

Featured Speakers

Laura Thomas, a graduate of the University of Waterloo’s Environment and Resource Studies program has worked in the landscape industry for over fifteen years, blending her passion for conservation and landscape design.  Laura saw the need for better, sustainable land management practices especially within the realm of private land owners.  Merging the elements of good landscape design with the practices of restoration ecology seemed both obvious and necessary given the fragmentation and destruction of landscapes today.  However, while working in the landscape industry she found that often people felt they had to compromise beauty for conservation.  Given her expertise in ecology, native plants and landscape design she knew that one could still have the simplicity and  impact of a modern garden while providing food and shelter for local wildlife.  Her unique and thoughtful designs demonstrate that healthy landscapes can be beautiful landscapes.

Seed Library

We welcome donations throughout the year. When you harvest your plants, please save some seeds to donate back to the library. Before you donate seeds, please label the envelope with the seed type, the date the seed was harvested or purchased, and your contact information. 

"Borrow" seeds and get your garden growing with the BPL Seed Library located at both library locations. Community gardeners can borrow up to 3 packets of seeds to plant and grow. Do note that seeds are donated, and so supplies may be limited.
