Jim Earnest and Ken O’Dell will host a Seed Sharing Event in the Visitor Center at the Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens. Attendees will be able to select and pick out seed that Jim and Ken have collected from the wilderness, woodlands, and prairies.
Seeds will be limited to 5 or 10 of each variety or species as this is a fun growing event, and not for commercial production.
There will be seeds from more than 50 different trees, as well as seeds from many shrubs, wildflowers, vines, and grasses. Small bags will be provided to put seeds in. Bring a notebook, you may want to take notes on planting and caring for your seeds.
This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Arboretum.
There is no additional charge for this event or registration required.
There is a $3 fee to enter the Arboretum, members are always free.
