One way to keep costs down when adding native plants to your garden is to start some plants from seed. Pam Morgan will lead an instructional workshop on how to start native plants from seed. 

This event will take you through the basics, including:

When is the right time to collect seed from native plants
What's different about starting native seeds compared to vegetable seeds
What are the different methods for starting native seeds
Where are some places to get native seed

We will collect some seed together from the Lake Springdale Rain Garden (if available) and participants can take the seed home. We will also do some hands-on "winter sowing" with milk jugs.

Free and open to the public.
