The LA County Arboretum

Native seed ain’t just for the birds! This class will guide you through the fun and easy experience of gathering, cleaning and saving seed from your own native plant garden. Examples of fruit, seed and seed-processing tools will be shown. Genevieve has worked with California native seeds for nearly a decade and is seed room manager at the Theodore Payne Foundation for Wild Flowers & Native Plants. She enjoys the beauty of the native garden in all its phases, including the magical stage of fruit and seed development.
