Seed Cleaning and Packing Pizza Party

  • American Red Cross Building 2700 Southwest Freeway Houston, TX, 77098 United States (map)

Help us kick off the Great Grow Out of 2019!

Katy Prairie Conservancy (KPC) and the Houston Chapter of the Native Prairies Association of Texas (HNPAT) are teaming up to host a seed packing party at the January 23rd HNPAT monthly meeting. Learn about prairie plants and how to clean their seeds. Prairie plant seeds collected from the wild last year will be packed into envelopes to be distributed to KPC's Great Grow Out participants and will be propagated at the KPC nursery in the coming year. Seed packers are encouraged to take some seeds home and participate. Bring garden gloves and pruners/scissors if you have them.

Come eat, make new friends, support KPC and HNPAT, and clean and pack seeds! No experience necessary.
