Future needs of ecological restoration require a collection of native seed available for revegetation projects. Jason and Martina presented a workshop for volunteer seed collectors and landholders in the Macleay Valley, Bowraville, focused on seed collection, the Florabank Guidelines and the Regional Seedbank.

Discussion topics included:

  • plant identification and seed processing
  • the role of native seed in conservation, restoration, and as an important part of indigenous culture
  • the safe storage and availability of native seed as insurance for the natural environment in the face of continuing threats of habitat destruction, natural disasters, and the impacts of a changing climate.

Restoration activities, managed by community and government initiatives, drive large-scale demand for collection, processing, and production of native seed. Get in touch with us, or your local Landcare network to find out more on seed collection if you would like to contribute to this important initiative.

This workshop was delivered in partnership with:
