Seed Collection Workshop @ O’Brien Nursery in Granby – 5:30 to 8 pm

August 1, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

This workshop was to have taken place in July but had to be rescheduled due to rain. Everyone who registered in July are automatically registered for the Wednesday, August 15 session (rain date is August 16)

Learn seed collection protocols and techniques. Build a seed collection kit and put it to use hunting for viable seeds at O’Brien’s Nursery at 40 Wells Road in Granby, and in surrounding fields. Class is scheduled for 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. with a rain date of Thursday, August 16.

Class Instructor Ellen Bender is a master gardener, master composter, and the owner and propagator of Eden’s Natives Nursery.

Class begins with a primer on seed collection and ends with you actually searching for seeds. A Seed Swap Workshop will take place this fall to give you the chance to trade and share your seeds with others.

Wear comfortable shoes and clothing to walk and forage. Bring water and protection from insects and sun. Since Ellen is known for her hats, wear your favorite gardening hat as well!
