Collecting and Saving Seeds Workshop

Seed collecting is a great way to get free plants and preserve the genetic diversity of our local flora. For home gardeners, land stewards, and plant advocates, saving seeds from native species ensures their ability to adapt to environmental and landscape changes. Learn when and how to responsibly harvest and clean seeds for propagation, restoration, and long-term storage purposes. This workshop combines morning presentations with afternoon hands-on seed collecting activities in Mt. Cuba Center’s Natural Lands. Become part of a vitally important network of plant conservationists and regional seed savers. Dress for the weather, bring a water bottle, and wear sturdy shoes for hiking on moderate slopes. Lunch and all materials are included in the fee.
