A short Program by Mike Slater on Collecting seed of native meadow plants and growing them for restoration planting . Followed by planning of seed collecting expeditions, seed sorting/cleaning gatherings, planting of seedlings, and seed sowing activities.
We want to broaden our distribution of seed to include private land owners who want quantities of native plant seed, of know local ecotype, in their landscaping as wee as continue to support local public areas in their efforts to increase native plant communities. Local areas we have worked with include, The Berks County Conservancy, The Union Twp. Recreation Area and a little bit at French Creek State Park.
