Jefferson Park Horticulture Center (HORT) - Let’s get ready for ...04/25/2019
Did you know the deadline for ordering plants for this Fall is May 15th?? Don’t worry if this is news to you because we're here to help! This workshop will help you decide which plants will work best for your restoration site. To get the bigger picture, Nelson Salisbury, an EarthCorps Senior Ecologist, will talk to us about restoration planning and site assessment considerations that’ll begin your journey to find the right plants for your restoration site. He will be followed by Eric Sterner, a Seattle Parks Plant Ecologist, who will walk us through what plants are available to order, highlighting characteristics that are beneficial for certain forest types. And if that wasn’t enough, at the end of the workshop we’ll get a tour of the Seattle Parks and Recreation greenhouse to get a sneak peak of our future plants for this fall.
