Heralding the start of a new seed collection season, Wild Ones Front Range Chapter welcomes mountain seed steward Penn Parmenter to share stories of field collecting native seeds and tips on how to clean them. Learn about wild seed collection ethics and best practices and permits/permissions needed to collect seed. Planting regionally adapted seeds from local genotypes is the best (and least expensive) way to introduce species diversity into cultivated gardens.
