Native Seed Collecting
Thursday, October 1st (Rain Date October 8th)
Choose from three sessions: 10AM - 12PM | 1PM - 3PM | 4PM - 6PM
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 intern, 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. 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.
Space is limited to eight participants per session. Program will be held outside observing social distancing guidelines. Masks must be worn at all times while at the farm.
$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.
