Learn how to sustainably collect, save and store native wildflower seeds.
Seed saving is an age-old tradition of resilience that is a great way to get engaged with nature and the community. It's a simple concept that means exactly what it sounds like: saving seeds in order to grow them in the future. This fun and empowering exercise is hugely important for protecting diversity and this project will be focused on local wildflower seeds. You will learn about wildflower seed identification in order to be able to make proper selections for seed saving. You will also learn about seed harvesting, storing and growing.
This event will take place outdoors in the grounds of Ballincollig Regional Park, meeting at the GAA entrance. Google Map Coordinates: 51.893798, -8.590495,
