The Native Seeds Project—Exploring Sustainability
The Student Environmental Association (SEA) at the University of Michigan-Dearborn collected native plant seeds from the U of M-Dearborn Environmental Interpretive Center (EIC) rain garden. These plants are naturally adapted for low-maintenance care, look great, can hold their own against the elements, make a great home for lots of native animals, and do a fine job taking up water when it rains. Our rivers and tributaries don’t flood as quickly, which is great for the things living in the water in more ways than we have space to explain here. To find out more, you can visit the EIC at 4901 Evergreen Drive, Dearborn MI 48128 free of charge to talk to the friendly staff, explore the Rain Garden, and discover the other campus natural areas or http://www.umd.umich.edu/eic/.
The SEA’s vision: Make the social, economic, and ecological environment accessible and relevant to current and future students through quality events, re-creational activities, stewardship, civic engagement, and ultimately cultivating a more vibrant, sustainable community on and around campus. To achieve this we refer to our Mission: The SEA informs, educates, and empowers students to acknowledge the greater community; engage their environment; develop a sense of wonder; and take informed, compassionate, sustainable action for social responsibility, economic prosperity, and ecological integrity.

Preparation: These seeds come from Michigan and need a chilling period. Refrigerate or keep in similarly cold place for 4 weeks, can freeze, or leave outdoors. Scatter seeds on preferred planting area. Planting Time: Early spring or fall Sunshine: Enjoys full sun Moisture: Water in moderation—adapted to drought Soil types: Best in well-drained (not clay!) soil that tends to be dry
Thank you for your support, and special thanks to the members of the Student Environmental Association who contributed their time and efforts to make this project happen, the EverGreen Team for their financial support, the staff at the EIC, Prarie Moon Nursery, and the Matthaei Botanical Gardens for their sage advice. –Ian D.
