    Past Event

Learn about the role native plants play in our ecosystem and how you can save seeds responsibly and effectively. Learn what it takes to harvest, store and plant these seeds for future success. After a short how-to lecture of common Michigan native wildflowers and grasses, make seed bombs using clay and native grasses and wildflowers to plant this fall, then enjoy the beauty and benefits next spring! End the class by taking a guided walk outside, weather permitting, to see some of Meijer Gardens’ native plants and learn about the part they play in the ecosystem this time of year. Attend the previous class in this seed saving series, Vegetables and Herbs, Thursday, September 8, 5:30-7 pm, to learn how to save seeds from a variety of vegetables and herbs.
