Come on out to our first fall meeting, September 19th and meet up with fellow LEGS members. Let’s learn something new!
Why grow heirloom vegetables?
- heirloom varieties of most vegetables are especially flavorful
- distinct colour varieties are attractive, vibrant and healthy
- Increase genetic variety of our food plants
- grow greater resistance to pests, naturally
Heirloom Vegetables Fall Meeting would not be complete without a seed exchange!
