National Tree Seed Centre Launches Indigenous Seed Collection Program

Specifically, the Indigenous Seed Collection Program will:

  • explore Indigenous seed collection and storage capacity;
  • assess equipment and training needs across Canada;
  • incorporate Indigenous knowledge into seed collecting, training and conservation efforts;
  • collaborate with communities and Indigenous-led small and medium-sized enterprises to identify technical and training needs;
  • co-develop a strategy with Indigenous communities to support the collection of species of interest for habitat creation, management of species at risk, restoration of ecosystems and community forest programs; and
  • develop a network of community participants to assist in seed collection and processing.
