The 2018 SWSP Stakeholder Meeting will be held at the BLM National Training Center in Phoenix, AZ (9828 North 31st Avenue, Phoenix, Arizona 85051). This is the second meeting for the SWSP and includes a morning information-sharing session with presentations from native seed farmers, collectors, researchers, and partnership coordinators followed by breakout discussions and panels (growers and buyers) in the afternoon. This meeting is open to all native seed stakeholders, but will emphasize Arizona seed needs and stakeholder input. We hope to involve all stakeholders in seed collection and production decision-making and in determining the structure of the partnership moving forward. A goal of the meeting will be to understand native plant materials demand within restoration and land management organizations.
