Due to popular demand, the Winter Native Seed Propagation workshop is sold out!
If you were unable to sign up, do not fret...be on the lookout for the Spring Native Seed Propagation & Seedling Success workshop at the end of April!
In this hands on demonstration class, join Emily Rauch, our Native Plant Program Manager, to learn how to stratify and winter sow native seeds. During the workshop you will discuss terminology and learn about different methods to use.
Everyone will leave with seed stratifying material (including local-ecotype seeds) and a full tray of planted seeds.
Come prepared to get your hands dirty- we will be propagating seeds of several species of native plants!
*Space is limited, so don't miss your chance, sign up today!*
