It’s Harvest Time! Collect Wildflower Seeds at the Native Seed Farm

It's Harvest Time! Collect Wildflower Seeds at the Native Seed Farm

Do a good deed, get a dose of Nature, and learn about the plants around you, all at once! Come experience the cool mornings and the spicy aromas of a California autumn while working with us at our one-of-a-kind Native Seed Farm in Irvine. Absolutely no experience or special equipment required.

You will be harvesting seeds from robust native fall wildflowers and bushes— things like California Buckwheat and our iconic Sagebrush. Reviewing the 1-through-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this level-1 activity on the land.

The seed you will pick has a direct impact on our local wildlife. It will be used to re-grow animal habitat within the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks.  The types you’ll help us harvest were selected especially by our Ecologists to provide animals with food and shelter, and also to buffer the impacts of floods and wildfires.

Come help us harness the special traits of these plants and use their natural powers to heal the wildland within the Landmarks! When you sign up, check the confirmation email to see tips on how to be prepared for you morning with us.
