Seed Collecting Workshop and Winter Sowing Demo (Members and Plus Ones) (Confirmed) Members Only
Home Garden of Chapter Officer, Midlothian, VA Map
Members Only Free Event Hands-On/How-To Workshop Seed/Plant Swap Lots of Physical Activity
DATE CHANGED TO SUNDAY, OCTOBER 15 (rain is expected on Saturday).
The chapter will host a Seed Collection Workshop and Winter Sowing demonstration for chapter members and "plus ones" (interested guests of chapter members).
Attendees will be provided with information about how to collect and clean seeds from a variety of plants present on the property.
Participants will be given containers and labels to use if they wish to try their hand collecting seeds, and following the demo can gather in small groups to practice separating seeds from seed heads (some seeds have been pre-collected for this purpose).
Seeds (either collected/cleaned during the workshop or selected from packets prepared in advance) can be taken home.
A winter-sowing demonstration also will be given!
Light refreshments will be available, and the schedule should also allow some time for socializing/getting to know your fellow members.
Because this event will take place at a private home/garden, we ask that chapter members RSVP to help the host plan for adequate seating, refreshments, etc.
Parking is available in the driveway and on the street (in a residential neighborhood). The location has been sent to chapter members.
