20% discount applies to Maine Audubon and Wild Seed Project Members
Location: Gilsland Farm
Late Fall is seed sowing time in Maine! Most native plants propagate naturally outdoors over winter, and starting native plants from seed is a fun, economical way to benefit your landscape. This workshop will focus on do-it-yourself seed propagation of native plants. Participants will leave with several seeded pots.
The seeds of our native plants have a different set of needs than those of garden and vegetable species. This workshop will teach you how to sow native seeds in a small outdoor propagation area. An individual, school, community group, or farm can produce a wide variety of perennial and woody species using the methods demonstrated in this workshop. Propagation of trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and ferns will all be covered.
Led by Heather McCargo, executive director of Wild Seed Project and an educator with 30 years experience in plant propagation, landscape design, and conservation.
