Intro ReWilding with the Wild Seed Project

with Heather McCargo, BA, MA


New! Get involved in some grass roots native seed sowing, by learning about the reproductive life cycle of different types of native plants, and how we can change our landscape practices to help support wild plant reproduction, pollinators and other wildlife. You’d be surprised that the seeds of wild plants have very different needs than those of garden and vegetable species. Growing native plants from seed is a fun and collaborative way to interact with our native flora and inexpensively produce lots of plants to share. Heather will present a slideshow, explain native seed sowing and outdoor propagation techniques for sun or partial sun loving plants, as well as current trends with native plants in the nursery trade. Partial proceeds benefit the Wild Seed Project. Heather is founder of The Wild Seed Project; an educator with 30 years of expertise in plant propagation, ecological design and conservation; was head plant propagator at the New England Wildflower Society’s Garden in the Woods; and has worked with other organizations such as USAID, National Gardening Association and MOFGA. She has lectured nationally and is widely published.
