Farming for the Future: Native Seed Production Tour, Monday, May 2, 10 am to noon

Join the Institute for Applied Ecology (IAE) and Benton Soil and Water Conservation District (BSWCD) to tour IAE's native plant farm with experts in propagating and producing native plants to provide restoration sites with pollinator and wildlife resources. On Monday, May 2 from 10 am to noon, we will gather at the Oregon State University Vegetable Farm plots that are dedicated to raising natives. BSWCD and IAE staff will present outdoors at the plots about native plant production and management, weed control, use of fire, companion planting, and lessons learned. Join us this Natural Areas Week and learn from our community's native plant experts. RSVP to in...@appliedeco.org for questions.
