The Science Behind Producing Native Seeds for Restoration
If you have ever done ecological restoration work, you have probably planted a seed in the soil. But where does that seed come from? In this seminar, we will discuss the large-scale effort to restore our natural areas through collecting and growing native seeds. Learn how native seed farms use a combination of traditional agricultural techniques and highly creative methods to grow native seed in an agricultural context. Topics will include the science behind sourcing native plants in the wild, adapting to climactic shifts in bloom time, genetic variability, cultural considerations, and cultivation techniques. You will never look at a seed the same way again!
