Seed Sowing Workshop


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.

Explore a vari­ety of local­ly col­lect­ed seed 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 seed to take home and — fin­gers crossed — coax­ing a baby tree to sprout.  All seed and mate­ri­als will be provided.

Work­shop loca­tion will be 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.  Loca­tion will be in our open-sided barn, or in the green­house, weath­er-depend­ing.  Closed-toe shoes only, please!

Tick­et prices vary.

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