CLASSES:

---NATIVE GRASS SEED COLLECTING AND CLEANING. Our most popular class, held in nine Western States and Delaware since 1990, and winning several awards. For public land managers who want to begin to utilize their own local seed resources. One pound of locally collected seeds, if given to a seed grower, can usually produce 100 pounds of commercially grown seed within 12 months. Afternoon session is to go out and learn how to hand-harvest seeds from wild stands. See awards for this class at the end of this web page.
