Growing native plants from seed is a great way to produce a lot of plants inexpensively and to protect the genetic diversity of our Maine native plants. Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District is offering a hands-on workshop on “Growing Native Plants from Seed” on Saturday, Oct. 28 from 10-11:30 a.m. at Sheepscot General Store and Farm, 98 Town House Rd. in Whitefield. Heather McCargo, founder and director of Wild Seed Project (, will explain how the germination requirements of native seeds are different from those of our common garden and vegetable plants and why fall is a great time to sow native seeds.
