Guelph Seedy Saturday is an accessible event that encourages healthy relationships with nature. People come to learn and share information about sustainable gardening practices. 

The availability of organic, open-pollinated seeds is central to the event's purpose. At every Seedy Saturday there is a community seed exchange table where folks can trade seeds, stories, and ideas with each other.

Members of Seeds of Diversity, began this remarkable phenomenon and describe it as:
“...not one event, but a series of separate events, which have sprung up across the country, each organized individually and uniquely under the same general theme. Seedy Saturday is a non-profit public event, operated by volunteers for the betterment of the local gardening community. Seedy Saturdays have mainly been organized by individuals and community groups who see a need for gardeners, vendors and organizations to have a low-cost local venue where they can learn from one another, exchange ideas and seeds, and purchase seeds and plants in a comfortable, social setting. Gardeners, seed companies, nurseries, gardening organizations, historic sites, and community groups have banded together of their own volition to represent themselves under the umbrella of this unique educational and promotional vehicle, not for the commercial benefit of any one company, group or individual, but for the benefit of all participants: visitors, vendors and exhibitors alike.”
