Seeds, Seeds and More Seeds!

“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.
