Britt Drews is a co-owner of Blue Stem Natives and she will be discussing how native plants have unique ways of dispersing seeds, by animal, wind, water...and explosions. We'll explore the best ways to collect, clean, and store native seed. We will also touch on how to winter sow them!

Bio:

Britt Drews is a co-owner of Blue Stem Natives, founded in the Spring of 2021. She discovered her enthusiasm for plants at the age of two when her grandmother let her help in the garden. She discovered her passion for NATIVE plants 20 years ago when a friend gave her a pot of black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia hirta) and the first goldfinch stopped by in the winter for the seeds. Blue Stem Natives is located in Norwell, Ma, and is quickly expanding their offerings of locally native plants, designed to accommodate all from the homeowner to landscaper to town municipalities.
