Sowing the Seeds of Grassland Restoration:

CNGA’s 30th Anniversary Celebration

Friday, June 11, 2021 - 8:30 am to 3:30 pm, Online Event

CNGA and Hedgerow Farms are partnering for the 14th year to offer this opportunity to look back and look forward at grassland restoration and practice in California’s spectacular native grasslands. We’ll take you through the restoration process: from wildland seed collection through farm production to tours of restored field site.

Follow the life of a seed from wildland seed collection to farm production.

  • Farm production: planting harvesting, processing with Pat Reynolds, CNGA, Andrew Fulks, Putah Creek Reserve; Bryan Young, Sacramento Regional Co. Sanitation District; Chris Rose, Solano Co. RCD

Seeds of restoration: Where are they now? Tour the state with virtual “show and tell” site visits and presentations.
