Saturday, June 26, 1:00 – 3:00 pm – Propagating Ferns and Mosses

Learn easy methods for propagating our wonderful New England native ferns and mosses.  The New England Wild Flower Society class focuses on the unique life cycles of bryophytes and pteridophytes and tips for growing them from spores, along with other propagation methods.  This hands-on course with Ron Wik includes a spore-collecting field trip, spore processing, and sowing. Take home your own sown spores, fern gametophytes (“sporelings”), fern sporophytes (“frondlings”) and a mature spore-grown fern.  The class will take place at Nasami Farm in Whately on Saturday, June 26, from 1 – 3, and will cost $30 for NEWFS members and $36 for nonmembers.  Register at
