Description

Come join the Wild Seed Project staff at the Viles Arboretum for an introduction to Native Seed Sowing! In this workshop Emily Baisden, the Seed Programs Manager at Wild Seed Project, will lead a hands-on presentation of all aspects of native seed propagation. The class will begin outside with a walk around Viles Arboretum to identify native plants and demonstrate ecologically-responsible seed collecting, before moving inside to teach seed storing and seed sowing. Be prepared to dig your hands deep into the diversity of native seeds! Participants will go home with two pots sown with native seeds and the inspiration to sow more native seeds in the future.
