Description: Winter Sowing for Native Plants: Free Workshop. Try an easy, inexpensive and fun way to grow lots of milkweed and other native plants from seed. Planted in recycled household plastic containers placed outdoors, seeds germinate in the spring and are garden-ready by summer. Winter sowing works for seeds that require a period of cold stratification. Join Oakvillegreen Conservation Association and Greening Sacred Spaces who will help you get started growing your own native plants for pollinators.

Space is limited. Pre-registration is required via Eventbrite.

Participants need to bring planting containers (translucent milk jugs, 1 litre clear plastic bottles, deep tupperware, or produce containers eg. lettuce/mushroom/strawberries), sharp scissors, a bucket or large bowl, and seeds. Common milkweed seeds and potting mix will be provided.
