Low Technology Institute to Sponsor Prairie Seed Collecting Workshop


Upcoming workshop: Learning how to collect prairie seeds October 12, 1-4 pm.

The Low-Technology Institute is a Wisconsin-based organization, located near Cooksville, Wisconsin, that promotes “non-industrial, subsistence technology”

The seed collecting workshop will be held on a private prairie restoration, also near Cooksville. Planning for the now-mature prairie restoration was begun in 2003 after the land owners were inspired by a workshop they took at the UW-Madison Arboretum. Here is a link to the full workshop description. (Full disclosure, the author of the Wingra Springs blog will be one of the workshop instructors.)

The workshop  will take place at a restored prairie (25 min south of Madison) on October 19, from 1:00–4:00 p.m. It is free, but please RSVP by sending an email to info@lowtechinstitute.org. Space is limited and we will keep a waiting list. Also, participants must fill out this liability waiver. Your RSVP is only complete when the waiver is filled out.
