“Seed Stewardship” with Dr. Alison Northup
Wednesday, October 4, 2023
Join us at Kathleen Clay Edwards Library for “Seed Stewardship” with Dr. Alison Northup. Learn about collecting and processing seeds and encouraging them to germinate. Hear about Alison’s simple winter-sowing method, which you can try at home. This lecture will be followed by a hands-on opportunity at David Craft’s property: Strieby Woods.
On Saturday, October 7, we will be going on a Seed Collection Saunter where you can collect your own seeds and learn about processing them. Registration will open soon!
