Toronto Seed Forecasting Workshop

June 17th, 2017

Green Thumbs Growing Kids, in partnership with Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation and Forests Ontario, invites you to a full day workshop. At the workshop, you will gain insight into key areas of seed forecasting and collection, including:

Seed production: Discerning various species’ flowering patterns and how surrounding conditions might impact flower development.

Seed development: Observing the maturity and development of newly fertilized seeds and potential threats.

Crop progression: Understanding and predicting the amount or size of seed crop that a particular tree(s) will yield.

Why is this important? To have a healthy urban forest in Toronto, we need to increase the resiliency of our trees. That means growing urban trees from urban seed. To do that, we need more seed forecasters identifying trees for our seed collectors to harvest.

A light lunch and refreshments will be provided. Registration is highly recommended as space is limited.

9-3:30pm
