Seed Sowing Workshop

October 15 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

$15

Roll up your sleeves and learn the basics of grow­ing trees from seed, as well as some handy insid­er tips from our tree nurs­ery staff.

Please reg­is­ter at this link.

Explore a vari­ety of local­ly col­lect­ed seeds and what it takes to prop­a­gate them, from seed preparation/treatment, to sow­ing meth­ods and tim­ing, pro­tec­tion from hun­gry ani­mals, and, after the won­der of ger­mi­na­tion, care of seedlings.

Then put into prac­tice what you learned by sow­ing seeds to take home and — fin­gers crossed — coax­ing a baby tree to sprout. All seeds and mate­ri­als will be provided.

The work­shop will be held at Tree Pitts­burgh’s Her­itage Nurs­ery (at the back of our office build­ing). Pre­pare for stand­ing at a work­bench for the dura­tion of the work­shop. Par­tic­i­pants will work in our open-sided barn, or in the green­house, weath­er-depend­ing. Closed-toe shoes only, please!

This event is suit­able for adults and chil­dren 16+ years old.
