Join 4-H for a Virtual Native Seed Planting Workshop on April 13th at 4:30 p.m. One of UMaine Extension’s Master Gardener Volunteers will be teaching youth about the importance of flowers native to Maine and their relationship with our pollinators. Youth will then be guided through the process of planting their own native seeds*.
This program is open to youth ages 10-18. A zoom link will be provided upon registration.
*Please note, by registering for this event youth are expected to participate in the workshop, plant the native seeds we provide, and help our state increase its native plant population. These seeds require specific preparation upon planting in order to germinate.
We will provide 2 types of native seeds, New England Asters and Black-eyed Coneflower, 2 pots, builders sand, and soil for planting. Due to the weight of the soil and the bulk of the pots, we encourage supplies to be picked up at the Oxford County Extension Office.
