Growing Native Plants from Seed Workshop with Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District

November 9, 2019 @ 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM

$25 – $30

This program is full!

Join Heather McCargo, founder and Executive Director of Wild Seed Project, to learn how to produce a lot of plants inexpensively and to protect the genetic diversity of Maine native plants by growing them from seed.

Heather will explain the germination requirements of a variety of native seeds from wildflowers and ferns to trees and shrubs, with an emphasis on outdoor seed sowing in pots or growing beds. Participants will get hands-on experience in native plant propagation from germination techniques to seed collection and storing procedures.

The cost of the workshop is $25 for Wild Seed Project members; $30 for non-members and includes seed, pots (min. of 4 per person), potting soil, and all instruction. Participants are welcome to bring seeds of native plants they have collected. This program is now full. 

For more information, email or call at julie@knox-lincoln.org or 596-2040.
