Native Seed Sowing Workshop with Coastal Rivers February 12


Growing native plants in your yard or garden can make a difference to pollinators and other insects, as well as birds that depend on insects to feed their young each spring.

On Saturday, February 12, Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust is offering a Native Seed Sowing Workshop from 11 a.m. to noon at Coastal Rivers Salt Bay Farm, 110 Belvedere Road, Damariscotta.

Coastal Rivers will provide all materials including pots, soil, seeds for sunny or shady locations, and a piece of cloth to protect the seeds from hungry birds and rodents when placed outdoors.

The seeds are purchased from the Wild Seed Project and are easy to grow for novice gardeners. Wildflower varieties include four types of asters, lemon balm, Bowman’s root, blue-stemmed goldenrod, common milkweed, pearly everlasting, and red columbine.

All ages are welcome to participate in this family program. Participants will be required to wear a mask and dress appropriately for the weather as the group will be working together at the picnic tables outside. Coastal Rivers asks that all eligible participants be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

There is a $12 hardware fee. Registration is required at
