Native Plant Talk   8/7  5pm

Come all gardeners and hear Heather McCargo of the Wild Seed Project!  In this talk, Heather will show you the fascinating reproductive life cycle of different types of native plants and explain how we can change our landscape practices to support wild plant reproduction, pollinators, and other wildlife.  Heather will demystify native seed sowing and explain simple outdoor propagation techniques anyone can do to help increase native plant populations.  The seeds of wild plants have different needs than those of garden and vegetable species and growing native plants from seed is a great way to protect the genetic diversity of our native flora and to produce an abundance of plants inexpensively.  RSVP HERE
