HPARD’s Greenhouse Workday @ Memorial Park Greenhouse

Volunteers meet the second and fourth Thursday of every month to propagate plants from locally collected native seed. A typical workday may include seeding pots, bumping up trays into 1-gallon containers, separating seedlings, and weeding pots. They will also have special seed collecting trips, invasive species removal workdays, and planting events in restored prairies.

A schedule and more information is available by contacting [email protected].
