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 adaptation in the face of climate change, safeguard wildlife habitat, and create pollination and migration corridors for insects and birds. A 501(c)3 non-profit organization, we sell seeds of locally grown native plants, publish an annual magazine, and educate the public so that a wide range of citizens can participate in increasing native plant populations.
