Klamath-Siskiyou Native Seeds participates in many community outreach events, including presentations, panels, workshops, symposiums, small events, and large events that incorporate the use of native plants and native plant seeds into their themes or programs.

This week we had the honor of being invited to do a presentation at Sanctuary One animal sanctuary in the Applegate Valley in southern Oregon. After a one-hour Powerpoint presentation, “Using Native Seeds for Land Stewardship and Pollinator Habitat,” we provided some hands-on work with native seeds. Giving people, including kids, the opportunity to see the seeds, experiment with seed cleaning techniques and packaging the cleaned seeds allows for a deeper understanding of the native plants themselves and how they reproduce.

Workshop participants got to take seed home that they cleaned in the workshop to grow out on their own in the future. This workshop used basic household items to show that the collection and processing of native plant seeds can be done on a small scale without the need for expensive equipment.

Thanks to Sanctuary One for hosting such a great community event!
