Native Plant Nursery Training: Seeds, Cuttings, Divisions

September 25 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

A long (& fun!) 3 hour class introducing the basics of native plant propagation (seed, cuttings, divisions) & local native plant production

About this event

Join us in-person for a free workshop perfect for folks who want to grow their own native plants at home or in their own nursery. This completely outdoor class begins with a short nursery tour, and covers:

– Seed collection and germinating

– Preparing and rooting cuttings (clones)

– Dividing existing plants

– Proper soils and fertilizers for young and old plants

Attendees will have the chance to take some material home (or to their nursery) to grow on their own, including seed and cuttings. Children over the age of 8 are welcome with a guardian.


This in-person workshop will take place outdoors at the Rancho Sierra Vista nursery. Much of the work will take place under shade, but attendees should be prepared to stand for at least 3 hours and be exposed to the cold and sun for various lengths of time. Please wear hiking or outdoor working attire, bring water/reusable water bottle, sunscreen, and a sun hat.
