"Several individuals on the Board of Directors of the newly formed Assiniboine Food Security Alliance (AFSA) thought that a Seedy Saturday type of event would draw attention to and contribute to increasing food security in east-central Saskatchewan. And so the volunteer run AFSA started the Prairie Sun Seed Festival (PSSF) in Yorkton in 2011. The seed festival was designed and continues to be part of AFSA’s community shared response to hunger so that all are living with the gift of good food.
The festival was and still is organized to celebrate the diversity of seed and the culture of growing food locally, connecting consumers and those interested in food security with seed sellers, rural and urban food producers, health professionals and others. Festival organizers have always held this event for people to learn about gardening, nutrition, seed saving, composting, home preserving and sourcing fresh food as key components of local food security.
Non-perishable food items collected as admission to the annual Prairie Sun Seed Festival are donated to local charitable food organizations."
