Native Plant Winter Sowing and Seed Exchange
Join us for our fourth annual native plant seed exchange and winter seed sowing project. Carmen Simonet, landscape architect and native plant enthusiast will start the evening off with a presentation on growing native plants from seed.
We'll have soil, seed and the other tools needed for this project but if you have seed harvested from your garden bring some to share - please have marked with common and Latin name. Also bring containers (clean empty large size yogurt container with lid or something similar).
See you in January!
And special thanks to Roz Johnson, Jo Ann Musumeci and Kathleen O'Connell for sharing their travel photos and stories at our November Potluck meeting!
Save the date!
Next year's DESIGN WITH NATURE Conference will be Saturday, February 18th at Anderson Student Center, University of St. Thomas, St. Paul Campus.

If you are interested in helping plan our 2017 Conference, our next open planning meeting is:
Monday, November 21, at 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Merriam Park Library (lower level)
1831 Marshall Ave
St Paul, Minnesota
Note about getting their during rush hour:
Library is at corner of Fairview / Marshall Aves, midway between Cretin/ Snelling exits from I-94.
Coming from north: Avoid sitting on the freeway by taking Snelling or Lexington to Pierce Butler Route, then head west to Fairview Ave. If you miss the turn for Fairview keep going and the road will get you across the freeway via Transfer Rd / Cleveland Ave (no turns, name of road changes).
Coming from the south: Take Edgcumbe Rd off of Hwy 5 / W 7th St, which into Fairview Ave as you go north. Pretty straight shot and traffic flows.
As this meeting is during the dinner hour, invite you to bring light snacks (to share) that would be easy to eat during the meeting without a lot of clean up. You may be reimbursed if you provide a receipt. Bring your own bottled or contained beverage.
