Seeds, Seeds, and More Seeds

July 14 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

“Before the Seed, there comes the Thought of Bloom; and we have much to Hope from Flowers”. Seeds are one of nature’s Miracles; and so much of all other life is tied to the phenology of plants and the reproduction of their species. To start learning about plant families we’ll look at the floral formulas; traits which are also easily identifiable in the fruits and seeds. In this class we’ll look at selection of seeds from various native genera, and talk about ethical harvesting, and how seeds travel. We’ll practice some simple methods of cleaning these seeds, and learn how to properly label and store seeds. You’ll also learn to ‘think like nature’ while timing your harvest, and considering a variety of pre-germination techniques.”
