Planting seed at the union Twp Rec Area February 14, 2009 at 1pm

The seed planting at the Union Twp Rec. Area is scheduled for February 14th at 1 pm.

Please tell everyone who is coming that we will need some more buckets than Jan and I can provide. If most of the people who come can bring a plastic bucket for mixing the sand and seed and then sowing from it we will be in good shape.

Union Township meadow project enlargement 2009

The Planting at the Union Twp Rec Area this February will be approximately 25' by 900' along the west edge of the field. The area is drier the the first area along the north edge. Here is the post about the first section of the field.

I plan on using the seed from the list for this planting.

The list is now online

Hi everyone,

I have just put up the 2008-09 seed list. (The link is also to the right under "Links"
It lists all of the seed Jan and I have collected this year (plus the collecting days at Lancaster County Central Park with Tim Draude). Quite a bit of this seed is in very small quantities which Jan and I will be sowing in pots and growing on to multiply it for future distribution. The seed we have in larger quantities is for sowing in native plantings in the area this year!

There is a column flagging the species I think we should use for the backyard seedbank program starting with the workshop next week.

There are a PDF and MS Excel Spreadsheet fole of the 2008 list and also of a "complete" of plants recorded for Berks County, PA.

I still have some of the leftover seed from 2007 to inventory. There is quite a bit of some things like Indian Grass (Sorgastrum nutans) and some other things which should still have good germination.
