Upcoming Grow Great Grub Events in Toronto

I’ve got a very busy week ahead. The best gardening event of the season, Seedy Saturday, is taking place this coming Sunday, February 21st followed by the Grow Great Grub Book Launch Party on February 24th.

Let’s start with Seedy Saturday, which is held on a Sunday this year but it is still called Seedy Saturday. Whatever you do, despite the name, do not show up on Saturday. No one will be there.

Now take a moment to absorb that confusing piece of information.

As usual I will be there with a table selling our fun and irreverent garden-related wares. In addition, I’ll have lots of new products on hand including my new book, Grow Great Grub: Organic Food from Small Spaces, a yet to be revealed t-shirt design that is AWESOME (our best t-shirt yet and quite possibly my new uniform), and a bunch of new button designs.


Then, just a few days later I will be hosting the Grow Great Grub Toronto Book Launch Party. The event is free and you’re all invited!

    Lula Lounge
    1585 Dundas Street West
    Toronto, Canada
    FREE Admission!

I have been feverishly preparing for this party. In fact, we started talking about it more than six months ago, only days after the final files were delivered to the publisher to print!

There will be music by DJ General Eclectic, delicious, locally produced nibbles prepared by The Local Cafe, a seed-starting station where you will be able to plant some seeds to take home, and I have secured a bunch of awesome door prizes (canning supplies, gardening tools, seeds, etc) that will be given away hourly. I will also be selling copies of the book, signing (of course), and answering questions.

More about the party can be found on The Facebook or Upcoming.
