Ash Seed Collection workshop, Thurs. 9/18 from 12:30-3:30 pm at CCE Tompkins

Ash Seed Collection workshop

Thursday 9/18 from 12:30-3:30 pm

CCE Tompkins, 615 Willow Avenue, Ithaca

Cost: Free

To register for this workshop, please contact organizer Clara Moore at clara.holmes-t3W4vYkbGyVIfGc2R+/Mjw@public.gmane.org or 718-370-9044.

Native seed collection is imperative for the preservation, conservation and reclamation of plant communities in decline. Face with the loss of Ash species as a result of the Emerald Ash Borer, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Seed Bank and the USFS National Seed Lab are collecting ash seed across New York State for preservation. Collecting seed is a fast and inexpensive way to reserve germplasm. By conserving the genetic diversity of ash species before the populations are lost, we have more opportinities to adequately restore the species to the landscape once a successful biological control is found.

Participants of this workshop will be introduced to the protocol for collecting Ash seed, learn how to identify Ash species and learn about preserving genetic diversity through seed. It is our hope that the information you gain from this workshop will result in your contribution of ash seed collections to both MARSB and the National Ash Conservation Project.

Please bring water, lunch, sun protection, bug repellent, appropriate outdoor clothing and a field notebook.

Planting for Native Birds class, 6-7:30 pm at Ithaca Permaculture Park

Planting for Native Birds workshop
Thursday September 18 from 6:00-7:30 pm

Ithaca Permaculture Park (aka Conley Park)

Alice Miller Way between Franklin and Adams Streets, Ithaca

Cost: Free!

At our current rate of growth we lose 21 million acres of bird and pollinator habitat to residential development every decade - an area the size of Maryland and West Virginia combined! This means it's more important than ever for homeowners to plant shrubs, trees, perennials and annuals that support native birds and pollinators. In this free, hands-on class participants will help design and plant a native garden in the Ithaca Permaculture Park (aka Conley Park). This is an opportunity to learn about native plants that provide food and habitat for native birds and pollinators as well as best practices for planting trees and shrubs. This is an outdoor hands-on class so please come dressed for the weather! Tools and gloves will be provided.

Seed saving is a fun skill that can deepen your understanding of plant propagation and save you money on yearly seed expenses. We will harvest and clean seeds from the CCE seed-saving garden, including tomatoes, beans, lettuce and summer squash. Participants will get hands-on experience harvesting and cleaning seeds to take home for their own gardens and will learn the best techniques for drying and storing saved seeds. A selection of heirloom tomatoes will be available for tasting and for participants to take home and save the seeds for next year's garden.

 

Pre-registration is strongly recommended so we have participants' contact information in the event of class cancellation. Call 272-2292 or email cab69-HmMyXyqgL2CVc3sceRu5cw@public.gmane.org to register.

There will also be information on dealing with major pests using non-toxic methods. Please call 272-2292 to register in advance, so we know how many handouts to make and can contact you in the event of a schedule change! Fee: $5-$10/person self-determined sliding scale.

<p class="MsoNormal"><span>Learning&nbsp; to identify insects in your home garden is a valuable skill. Some insects are beneficial and others are pests so it's very helpful to know the difference.&nbsp; We
 will go through the major orders of insects, look at different types of damage to plants by insects, and practice identification skills on insect samples. There will also be information on dealing with major pests using non-toxic methods.

It's also the best time to plant garlic for spring harvest, and over-wintering cover crops can also be sown now to add fertility and improve soil texture. Learn which crops are suitable for fall planting and when to plant them, and different methods for over-wintering vegetable garden beds.
