Wintergreen
Nelson County, Virginia

For years the Wintergreen Nature Foundation has been putting on its Wildflower Symposium. This year it was held from Friday May 13th until Sunday May 15th.

The Symposium offers workshops on harvesting and breaking dormancy of wildflower seeds, how to grow ferns from spores and how to grow native shrubs from cuttings. The Nature Foundation uses seeds, spores and cuttings from the Blue Ridge region in their landscape restoration efforts.

People at the 2011 Wildflower Symposium make birdhouses as one part of the 2 day event held at Wintergreen.

Regional artists were on hand to share their work and offer workshops with nature and wildflower themes. Speakers included experts from the Commonwealth who work with Virginia’s rare plants as well as those who grow them.
