In this fully outdoor program, we’ll cover:

  • How to take cues from nature to determine when to harvest
  • Seed harvesting, handling, and storage techniques
  • Stratification (cold treatment) methods and timing
  • Tips for getting started in the spring
  • Equipment suggestions
  • We’ll send you home with 8-10 kinds of native wildflower seeds and a tip sheet
