The garden of your dreams starts on Saturday, February 24th, with the 17th Annual Seed Celebration and Sustainable Community Fair, 8:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. at the Gilsum STEAM Academy, 640 Route 10, Gilsum, NH.

Come for the day, or just an hour, to celebrate the miracle of seeds and gardening with The Sustainability Project, now in its 24th year. Farmers, gardeners, and activists working for sustainable and regenerative ways of living on the planet have come to know this event as a great opportunity for joyful networking. Participants will have the opportunity to receive support planning their gardens and stock up on seeds. There will be lunchtime music and a café featuring soups, stews and baked goods from local restaurants and kitchens, including Orchard Hill Breads, to nourish all. As customary, a bountiful raffle has been made possible by generous local businesses.

Consider finding a niche at the Celebration by signing up to volunteer at the event.
