Saturday 29 September is the date of our next Urban Naturalist workshop. It’s being led by Dr. Rachel Webster, Curator of Botany at The Manchester Museum and is on the theme of seeds.

Rachel will help you learn how to harvest, clean and prepare seeds for storage. Practice your skills with seeds harvested from The Museum Allotment. The session will include a talk describing seeds and how they work with examples from the botanical collections and the value of large scale seed collections and seed banking. There will also be an opportunity to visit the Herbarium where all the botany collections are kept.
