Wednesday February 21, 2018 rain or shine from 12 PM to 3 PM. Jim Earnest and Ken O’Dell will host a Seed Sharing Event in the visitor center at the Overland Park Arboretum.
 Attendees will be able to select and pick out seed that Jim and Ken have collected from wilderness, woodlands and prairies.  Seed will be limited to 5 or 10 of each variety or species as this is for a fun growing event and not for commercial production. 
 There will be seed from more than 50 different trees, as well as seeds from many shrubs, wildflowers, vines and grasses. The seed and small bags to put them in will be provided. You should bring a pen to write on paper or plastic. 
There is no charge for the event, and registration is not necessary. Just come in with a smile on our face.  There may be a $3 fee to enter the Arboretum.
