Earth Day Every Day Series: Collecting Native Seeds: Sow Much to Know!

Share This:

How do you get started incorporating native plants into your yard? One easy way is to collect native seeds and overwinter them to start your own plants.

Join Angela Monaghan, Rutgers Master Gardener Coordinator for Middlesex County to learn the ins and outs of native seed collection and sowing seeds for next year’s garden.

Rutgers Cooperative Extension presents the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day webinar series for this fall. Open to the public, these sessions focus on steps everyone can take to protect the environment.

We can all do our part to take actions that make our homes more sustainable, from fall lawn care, to home energy efficiency, to adapting to coastal flooding. Also included are two RU Wildlife Wise sessions with the Rutgers Wildlife Conservation and Management Program including a special Halloween edition!

Details: Join Rutgers Cooperative Extension every Monday evening at 6:30pm for this free series starting September 14th.
