What is it?
With support from a Capitol Region Watershed District Grant, the MN SEED Project is helping local residents save seeds from native plants they are identifying and inventorying in 2021. Then, these seeds can be shared and propagated to increase the biodiversity and populations of native plants in our region.
Join the project
All are welcome to join the MN SEED Project. Sign up online—it's free!—and choose from a variety of online classes and in-person events throughout the year. Join seed swaps, native plant propagation classes, plant ID webinars and iNaturalist app tutorials that will help you inventory and identify your native plants. Anyone growing within the Capitol Region Watershed District can also access class discounts and giveaways.
