Online: Ecotypes, Ecoregions + Ecological Restoration: Fortifying The Living Seed Bank

February 23 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

 

The Ecotype Project has created a model for native plants material development utilizing the ecoregional framework to ensure we are- planting the right plants in the right place. The truly local seed supply chain begins with trained botanists that wild-collect ecotypic seed, which is grown out as a specialty crop by organic farmers in founder plots, then cleaned and made commercially available to our nursery partners & by our farmer-led seed collective: Eco59.

The initiative’s intention is to repair local seed sheds to collectively re-wild the fragmented landscapes- by fortifying the living seed banks- the soils, of our shared ecological corridors.

Cost: $25
