Start your gardens

Seedy Saturday in Cache Creek on Feb. 1. Come and enjoy this free event.

Locally grown seeds.

Tired of winter? Can’t wait to get outside and sink your fingers into the dirt?

The Cache Creek Beautification Society is holding its first Seedy Saturday on Feb. 1 from 10 am to 3 pm in the Cache Creek Community Hall.

Admission is free. You can either participate or browse. There will be a seed exchange, door prizes, local speakers talking about growing and using culinary herbs, attracting birds and butterflies to your yard, and more, free tables for groups and vendors (must be yard/garden-related). Displays, demonstrations, seed sales, kids activities and a concession provided by the Parents Advisory Committee.

Or just come and talk to other gardeners and outdoor enthusiasts like yourself.

The Beautification Society is also making plans for this year’s farmer and flea market which opens in May, supporting the formation of a new Cache Creek Garden Club, and helping the Communities in Bloom committee plan its 2014 activities. Come on out and share your thoughts with us. Contact Wendy at 457-9587 for a table, to help out, or just for information.
