Community Wide Yard Sales

It’s back! The super-duper, you-won’t-wanna-miss-it: Kensington-Wide Yard-Sale Day!

On Saturday, June 15th, you will NOT be able to walk through Hillhurst without hitting a street full of friendly faces and enthusiastic peddlers of treasures. For 18 years (and counting), neighbors have pillaged their attics & storage spaces to find all kinds of interesting things to offer for sale--AND, as an added perk, there are always some young entrepreneurs offering up tasty treats to eat, too.  

7. IMG_5200.jpeg

When: Neighbor Day--Saturday, June 15th, from 9am to 2pm

Where: between Kensington Road & 5th Ave NW, visit the streets of 10A, 11th, 11A, 12th, and 13th (and beyond??)...it’s on one day only, so don’t miss it!

 

Bonus this year: reap the benefits of the Netflix sensation--“Tidying Up with Marie Kondo”!

Which of your neighbors binge-watched this hit series and then completed a serious purge of items that didn’t ‘spark joy’? You’re about to find out!

 

How to take part:

●      HOST A SALE--go ahead and just set out some things that day and encourage your neighbors to do so, too. Household items, artisan wares? Anything goes! Don’t have a whole lot to put out on your own? Invite friends/family to bring items to sell, too.

●      VISIT A SALE--not only is it a great way to find treasures and see interesting things, but you’ll meet some awfully nice people nearby, too.

●      HOST A FOOD-STAND--lemonade, sweets, breakfast burritos or hot-dogs? Yes, please!

●      MAKE A DATE OF IT with friends/family--invite some pals over to wander the neighborhood, peruse sales, nibble on snacks, and hang out in the ‘hood!

●      SPREAD THE WORD--make a poster, recruit kids to make colorful chalk-drawings to lure shoppers onto your street, post on Social Media, or just pick up the PHONE and tell people to come on down!

 

Happy Neighbor Day 2019!

Seedy Saturday

Calgary Seedy Saturday is keeping the skill of growing from seed to seed alive in Calgary. As large commercial seed companies consolidate and only offer more hybrids and patented varieties, we are increasingly losing the regionally adapted collections that have developed in our unique prairie climate.

Calgary Seedy Saturday helps maintain this irreplaceable genetic diversity by offering non-hybridized, non-GMO varieties of seeds. You and your family can discover the superior taste of heirloom vegetables, learn to save seeds and share them with your neighbours. As you grow them season after season these seeds will adapt and grow that much healthier!

Calgary Seedy Saturday is part of the worldwide Seedy Saturday/Sunday events that celebrate open-pollinated seeds. In Calgary, the event is coordinated with the support of the Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Association.

This family event will have displays by local seed savers, prairie seed companies, native plant collectors, conservation groups, community gardeners and much more. A full list will be up on our exhibitor page in mid-February. There will also be seed exchange table, a concession with lunch and refreshments, and a kids corner. We also have presentations through out the day, a full list will be up on the presentations page in March. http://www.calgaryseedysaturday.ca/

Cost of admission: $2 (Cash Only, Calgary Dollars accepted)

Many vendors accept cash only. There is a cash machine on site but it often runs out part way through the event, so bring money with you!

Parental supervision is required in the children's area.
