Winter Sowing Native Plants
One of the ongoing goals of the Intown Atlanta GNPS is to make adding native plants to the landscape easier for everyone. This past year we had our inaugural Native Plant Share & Swap which was a great success with 85 people sharing and swapping over 600 native plants! Winter sowing is another way to make adding native plants more accessible. Our Intown board decided to host a winter sowing workshop and seed sharing opportunity as our first big event of the year. I created content with a word document and photos that my uber talented daughter who is a graphic designer turned into an amazing Powerpoint. I'm typically more comfortable in the background, so my only personal challenge to overcome was being in the front of the room doing the presentation itself. The event quickly reached capacity at 80 with a capped waiting list. Hopefully, offering the presentation in a sharable form will reach more people who want to try winter sowing native plants to restore the ecosystem where they live.
