Winter sowing is a fun, easy, low-cost way to grow native plants and increase biodiversity.

This rewarding process will help you to successfully grow plants that improve our local ecosystem and take advantage of the natural germination process by adding protective elements provided by nature through temperature changes. Our presenters will show you how!

Sharing Native Plant Seeds will help all attendees to increase the variety and quantity of native plants in their gardens.

Bring native seeds you’ve grown and collected or extra seeds from native plant nurseries to share. If you don’t have any seeds yet – no worries – there will be some for all.

Participate in a Free Raffle for native seed packets.

Although this is a free event, we welcome donations to contribute to the development of future programs.

A thanks and some info: Your Yard is Nature’s Best Hope!

A thanks and some info: Your Yard is Nature’s Best Hope!

A big thanks to our presenter Vicki Mann of Quiet GA for her presentation recently at Emory University. Thanks also to Leslie Inman for participating in the event and for all her hard work on behalf of urban habitat.

Mann’s presentation, “Your Yard Is Nature’s Best Hope”, is based on Leslie Nelson Inman’s book, “Your Yard is Nature” and the teachings of Doug Tallamy.

For those who were unable to make the presentation, Mann has graciously shared it with us and it can be found here.

The presentation contains many resources to find information and native plant sellers in the Atlanta area. We appreciate your support of all the GNPS partners.
