2020 Native Connections Catalog

We’ve been producing our Michigan genotype grasses for more than 10 years. All are grown locally and managed ecologically through fire and responsible harvesting, and cleaned in our processing facility in Kalamazoo, MI. We hand collected the source seed from remnant sites throughout southern Michigan or sourced plants from other trusted nurseries. For more on our history with native seeds, check out “Our Roots” in our 2020 Catalog.

Carex brevior seed heads

We also have local collections of many other grasses, sedges, and wildflowers from southern Michigan and in 2018 and 2019 we planted several new seed production plots of sedges and wildflowers, in addition to increasing some of our key grasses. We are excited to get more species into production and plan to increase diversity and capacity each year. We’ll keep you posted!
