Look for MnSEED at community fairs in 2022!

Seed saving events to learn, collect, process and share native plant seed have been the hallmark of MnSEED, a community science project that connects the power of saving seeds from native plants with the gardening community and local growers in Minnesota. In April, the MnSEED project brought hands-on activities to Como Park’s Celebrate Spring event in St Paul. Likewise in May, the project participated in the Mighty Midway Spring Festival in the Hamline Midway neighborhood, also in St. Paul. Seed cleaning and seed sharing activities engaged event-goers who threshed, winnowed, and sieved plant material to yield clean seeds ready for stratifying or planting! Visitors selected seed packets at our exhibit booth, from varieties which are frequently now sold out at local nurseries. All along, lots of questions about plants, pollinators and seed how-to were offered and answered. During the 2022 summer, look for more MnSEED exhibiting at other community fairs and events such as V-FEST (https://vfestmn.com/), and the Gibbs Farm Pathways to Dakota & Pioneer Life’s Apple Festival (https://www.rchs.com/gibbs-farm/) .
