Seed Cleaning in the Greenhouse

for Active Stewards

View Pingg invitation TBA

Greenhouse Directions

10:30 am to 12:30 pm

High Park Greenhouse, Greenhouse Road

By Invite - Updated: the session is full. We work even in snow, it's inside.

Seed Cleaning in the Greenhouse is very popular, but due to space limitations we are only sending invites to those on our email list, especially to those who have braved the elements and assisted in planting, invasive species removal, at our native plant sale, or are working on special projects. This special activity is a benefit for helping out during the past year.

RSVP to invitation is required.

Seed Cleaning is the separation of the usually tiny seeds from the dried flower heads, collected in High Park in the last year. Planting these separated seeds has proven to be very successful in cultivating as many rare and limited back oak savannah plants as possible.


For more information on using seeds in restoration projects. See page 23 in particular for seed cleaning: - Planting the Seed (pdf) Environment Canada
