Nursery Series: Introduction to Seed Collection & Cleaning


Introduction to Seed Collection and Cleaning, Park Academy

Robin Binaoro (Associate Manager, Presidio Nursery) and Stacy Jacobsen (Seed Collection Program Manager) will be discussing the fundamentals of seed collection and cleaning. This class will cover basic concepts of seed formation and physiology, fruit taxonomy, collection policy and considerations, then continuing to the field to learn the difference between ripe and unripe seeds, and finally back to the lab for cleaning and storage techniques. Please join us for this fun hands-on class!
