Hilltop Hanover Farm, 1271 Hanover Street, Yorktown Heights

Join our workshop to harvest native seeds and learn about Hilltop Hanover's living seed bank and native plant conservation nursery.

Attend this two hour participatory program to learn about "local ecotypes", tour our seed plots, and help us collect seeds from three local provenance native plant species.

Hilltop's Native Plant Program Manager, Emily Rauch, will explain how our farm-based native plant nursery is a full circle biodiversity initiative designed to protect existing natural habitats and conserve native flora specifically adapted to our ecoregion.

First, there will be a brief PowerPoint describing ecotypes, seed morphology, seed maturity and seed storage.

Following the seed harvest, join us for a discussion about using native plants in the local landscape while enjoying a cool herbal drink and snack.

$30 registration fee covers class, native seeds to take home, drink and snack. Farm-grown native plants from our native plant conservation nursery will be available for sale following the program.

Ages 13 and up
13+ must be accompanied by a participating adult.

Max family price $65.
