This series of classes was developed by Charlotte Torgovitsky to help train volunteers to support the range and vegetation resource management programs at the Pt. Reyes National Seashore by establishing a volunteer-based nursery. Everyone is welcome to attend, and many homeowners who wish to restore habitat on their properties do so because "growing your own" is a better and cheaper source of native plants.
Growing your own native plants from seed, cuttings or divisions is not only very cost-effective, it’s also incredibly satisfying! And once you’ve learned some basic principles and can avoid the most common mistakes made by gardeners trying to successfully propagate plants, you will find that the rewards are many.
Extensive, detailed handouts are provided as well as light refreshments. At every class, participants can take home a selection of seeds, seedlings, or cuttings for their own gardens.
