Reservoirs of Adaptive Potential and the Seed Collectors Who are After It

The flora of New York City is unique and has evolved alongside an ever-changing landscape that is fragmented, altered, polluted and beautiful. The valuable genetics of these plants species and the local adaptations are wrapped up in their seed. For decades, the Seed Collectors at the Greenbelt Native Plant Center have traveled to all the reaches of the five boroughs and beyond to capture this critical natural resource. The Seed Collection program and process is the foundation of all production at the nursery…as we always like to remind everyone “Every seed is a possible plant”.
