As the beauty of spring fades into summer, get ready to put your seed saving hat on! By understanding the process of ethically collecting and saving native seeds, you can ensure future generations of the beautiful flowers and plants in your garden.


Join us virtually on Saturday, May 15 at 10:30 am to noon to learn how to collect, clean, store, and germinate seeds from your garden. With the guidance of Cheryl Birker, Seed Conservation Program Manager at CalBG, and Steven Valdez, Lead Nursery Technician at CalBG, get a behind the scenes look of what we do to conserve native seeds through our Seed Bank and Grow Native Nursery here at CalBG and what you can do at home. We will focus on the what, when, where and how of seed collecting, understanding how to clean and process seeds in preparation for proper storage, and how to germinate seeds when the time comes. Feel poised to carry your abundant garden this year into the next, and for many more to come. 


Please note, this class will meet virtually through Zoom.
