Rescheduled to Thursday, 7/26: Seed Collection Workshop at O’Brien Nursery

July 26, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Rescheduled to Thursday, 7/26 due to rain – same time, same place.

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, July 26.

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!

Attendance fee for members is $15, $20 for guests and $5 for students with valid ID. Click to register online  for this interesting workshop or contact Mary Anna at CT Hort:  office@cthort.org or 860-529-8713. The office is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
