January 10th – February
Seed Exchange Workshops
The Henry Foundation for Botanical Research, 801 Stony Lane, Gladwyn PA
Join us to clean, sort, and package seeds at our annual Seed
Exchange. Even if you never intend to propagate plants from seeds
yourself, you will be amazed at how much you learn about all
things green at these workshops, sharing information, learning new
varieties and species, finding out about plant sources/nurseries,
and other valuable information. No previous experience is
necessary, nor do you have to attend an entire session. Come when
you can. This is a great way to meet fellow HPSers and to learn on
the job. The Seed Exchange is one of our most important activities
and we need lots of helpers to make this event a success. To
volunteer, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Seed orders accepted through January 16.
All workshops will be held January 15th – February at The Henry Foundation for
Botanical Research, 10:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
Information about volunteering is in your Newsletter.

Scott Arboretum, Science
Cosponsored with Scott
Arboretum. Reception follows; free and open to the
Ed owns an unconventional
nano-nursery in Southeastern New England with an increasingly
anachronistic horticultural approach-actively collecting,
propagating, and growing plants. The focus is on the
under-cultivated and garden-worth, while specializing in unusal
perennials. He has a special interest in breeding and
selecting plants from diverse genera, such as Kniphofia,
Sanguisorba, Hydrangea and Bergenia.
Ed has two young children and a dog about the property, so
the nursery employs strictly organic pest controls, and strives as
well to be peat free. The nursery is open by appointment only.
