MnSeed collected seed is powering planting projects in St. Paul, MN

Beyond exhibiting at fairs, more in-person collection opportunities will happen later in 2022 where participants can harvest seeds at various gardens and naturalized sites in the Twin Cities. This series not only teaches the basics of seed collecting, but provides access to dozens of native plant species to expand our collective native pollinator plantings. Many of the 250,000 seeds of 67 native species that were harvested during last season's collection events are now germinating in Minnesota containers and pots for area backyard and community plantings. One St Paul community is using plants propagated with a MnSEED seed source for a right-of-way greening project called "The Bee Line". So far this campaign has used winter sowing kits to germinate 56 different native plant species! (see https://www.stephaniehankerson.com/blog/pierce-butler-meadows-2019-rundown)
