Wild Seed Project: Returning native plants to the Maine landscape
Wild Seed Project works to increase the use of native plants in all landscape settings in order to conserve biodiversity, encourage plant adaption in the face of climate change, safeguard wildlife habitat, and create pollination and migration corridors for insects and birds. A nonprofit organization, we sell seeds of locally grown native plants and educate the public on seed sowing so that a wide range of citizens can participate in increasing native plant populations.
You can be part of the solution
Please donate now to our fall
campaign. Your contribution will help
raise awareness about the beauty
and importance of native plants,
expand seed offerings, workshops and events
throughout Maine, and publish the next issue
of Wild Seed. We only have until December 31st,
so please contribute today!
