Seed Cleaning (Volunteer Session, Winter 2020)

January 26, 2020 @ 5:00 am - 9:00 am

FREE

Bartram’s Garden horticulturalist Mandy Katz will provide guidance as we hand-process a wide assortment of seeds collected from the garden. Support Bartram’s Garden while enjoying a relaxing, communal atmosphere with many hands at work. Some of these seeds will be sold out of our nursery while others will be planted in the garden in the spring. Each type of seed is handled a little differently, making this an excellent learning opportunity for those interested in learning the ancient practice of saving seed. No experience necessary! All are welcome. This event takes place in the Coach House.

Wintertime notes on weather and accessibility:

If Philadelphia public schools are closed due to weather, Bartram’s Garden will be closed, as well.

This event will take place in a heated, indoor space that is accessible via wheelchair. ADA accessible bathrooms will be available nearby, as well. We’re happy to make accommodations for guests with mobility limitations. Large portions of our 50+ acre botanical garden can be explored via wheelchair, though some of our paths should be used at your own discretion. If you have questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out ahead of the event.
