Heather McCargo is the Executive Director of The Wild Seed Project, a Maine 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that educates the public on propagation techniques to encourage increasing native plant populations. She will be one of the speakers at the 24th annual Ecological Landscape Alliance (ELA) conference.
In January her article “Sowing Native Seed” appeared in the ELA’s blog. She opened with “the seeds of wild plants have a different set of needs than those of common garden and vegetable species,” and then goes on to tell us about the various sort of germinating requirements of various native plants. Later in the article she talks about propagation, sowing seeds, germination and collecting seeds. It’s a really great article. ‘hope you can find time to read it.
Heather will be one of the speakers at the 24th annual Ecological Landscape Alliance (ELA) conference. Her organization The Wild Seed Project publishes an annual magazine Wild Seed, and sells seeds of wild and uncultivated forms of native plants.
