Forest Gene Conservation Association (FGCA) – Seed Collection Workshops

  Increasing Seed Supply in Ontario

Since 1994, one of FGCA’s core goals has been to increase the supply of high-quality, source-identified seed of Ontario’s native woody species. Source-identified seeds are critical to optimizing forest restoration so that the trees planted live for a long time. This principle is true whether it be one tree in your urban yard or 10,000 trees to help restore a rural watershed.

 

Seed Collection Workshops

  Ontario’s Natural Selections is a voluntary, woody plant seed source certification program of the Forest Gene Conservation Association (FGCA). Seeds and plants sold under this label are certified by the FGCA to be from the identified source, so consumers can decide where it will grow best. We focus on the education of consumers, seed collectors and growers for better planting success. Growers adhering to Ontario’s Natural Selections are listed in the Society of Ecological Restoration’s 6th Native Plant Resource Guide for Ontario (2011).

  2-day CSC Workshop

  This workshop is the full CSC curriculum including classroom learning with seed samples and potentially, a hands-on experience with an organized seed collection in the local area. Participants learn about:

·      What it takes to be a seed collector

·      Ontario’s natural forest types and ecological niche of major species

·      Current market demand and major seed buyers/growers

·      Current afforestation and restoration programs using source-identified seed

·      Flower and seed biology, reproductive cycles and environmental effects

·      Genetic diversity and adaptive variation with woody species

·      Ontario’s current Seed Zone or Transfer policies

·      Physiological seed quality: cut tests, maturity indicators, insects and disease

·      Seedlot registration information and the chain of custody

·      Seed forecasting

·      Collection methods

·      Field storage and shipping best practices

  1-day Mentoring Workshop

·      For new CSCs that want more experience before handling their own contracts with seed buyers. Trainers review the key objectives of the CSC program but dive deeper into practical aspects of seed collection planning, field storage and shipping.

·      For existing CSCs who want to learn about additional species.

·      For people who want to invest in one day before deciding if full certification is something they want.

  To apply for the workshops please fill out the form located on the bottom of their website here to be notified of upcoming workshops in your area. Attendance is a minimum of 15 people and a maximum of 25 in a regional area.
