Mission Statement

Wild Seed Project works to increase the use of native plants in all landscape settings in order to conserve biodiversity, encourage plant adaptation in the face of climate change, safeguard wildlife habitat, and create pollination and migration corridors for insects, birds, and other wildlife.

Description

A small nonprofit organization based in Portland, ME, Wild Seed Project ethically collects seeds of wild and uncultivated forms of native plants and educates the public on propagation techniques to engage citizens in promoting native plant populations.

We share information and bring people together around native plant conservation and horticulture through our interactive website and annual magazine, Wild Seed. Wild Seed Project collaborates with scientists, landscape designers, ecological restorationists, land trusts, gardeners, schools, and interested citizens on a variety of community projects such as planting pollinator corridors and native gardens in public and private spaces, identifying native plants, and training in seed collection and propagation.
