Where We Work

Pollinator Garden Installations

Seed to Site is currently installing pollinator gardens to provide suitable habitat for Monarchs, bees, and other pollinator species. These gardens allow for less mowing, more enjoyment of nature, and an oasis for pollinators to thrive. As simple as a strip of native plants, to a more aggressive design including the removal of major patches of grass in the backyard, we've got just design for your budget!

Treaty Site History Center

Visit the Nicollet County Historical Society's History Center in Saint Peter, just off Hwy 169 and you'll see a newly installed rain garden and patio on the North side of the building.  These native plantings are hard at work capturing runoff to improve water quality, and they look beautiful too!  

 

Minneopa State Park Vegetation Assessment

Minneopa State Park was once home to indigenous people, as well as a wide variety of wildlife. None more prolific as the American Bison (Bison bison), these majestic animals are being brought back to the park through a partnership with Blue Mound State Park. We've been contracted with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources over the past 3 years to monitor and report on the variety and health of browse suitable for Bison to sustain themselves. 

 

Gustavus Adolphus College Arboretum

Seed to Site has been contracted to improve the health of the Linneaus Arboretum by GIS mapping vegetation and identifying invasive species to be removed by volunteers and students.  We're also planting native species to replace those invasives. This is a great example of community partnership that Seed to Site encourages.

 

Southern Minnesota Native Seed Bank

The origination of native seed is important to the success of a native planting because each seed carries the information passed on from the parent plants that it will require to thrive in a given climate.  Local ecotype seed and plants help ensure the success of restorations; our goal is to provided South-central Minnesota with this resource.  If you own land with native plant populations, consider granting access to Seed to Site; your land could contribute to the conservation of local species for future generations.
