MN Seed Native Seed Collection Workshop

Blue Thumb is hosting the MN SEED Project for a native seed collection workshop this fall! You’ll learn when seeds are ready to collect and tips for collecting, cleaning, processing, and storing them. This is a hands-on workshop: you’ll be able to collect a variety of seeds and take some home to plant! Our instructors are from the MN Seed Project, which you can find more about here.
