Jim Earnest and Ken O’Dell will host a Seed Sharing Event in the Visitor Center at the Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. Attendees will be able to select and pick out seed that Jim and Ken have collected from wilderness, woodlands, prairies, and the Arboretum.
Seed will be limited to 5 or 10 of each variety or species as this is for a fun growing event and not for commercial production.
There will be seed from more than 50 different trees, as well as seeds from many shrubs, wildflowers, vines and grasses. The seed and small bags to put them in will be provided. You may need to take notes on how to plant and care for your seed, bring a notebook.
There is no charge for the event, and registration is not necessary. Just come in with a smile on your face.
