Schubert Centre - 3505 30th Ave

Last year at this time, 160 people filled the salon of the Schubert Centre in Vernon to swap or buy seeds, and to listen to sobering news about GMO products as well as a peppy introduction to the concepts of Permaculture. With increasing interest in home-grown food, this year's event should have been popular again.

Perhaps Easter weekend beginning the next day made people too busy. Maybe the early spring meant everyone had planted already !;o)

Presentations focused on gardening tips, as well as more information on GMO.
