Cultivating Place: High Value Habitat, Pat Reynolds of Heritage Growers Native Seed & Plant
Pat Reynolds is a restoration ecologist with more than 30 years of professional experience in the design, implementation, and monitoring of habitat restoration projects, including the effective use of native seed.
He is the Director of River Partners’ Native Seed and Plant program, the former General Manager of Hedgerow Farms, and a past Associate Restoration Ecologist at H.T. Harvey & Associates.
This week we continue our series exploring conservation and biodiversity support at the foundational level of seed—for scales large and small—in conversation with Pat. Heritage Grower’s high-quality habitat seed sourcing, grow out, and distribution to restoration projects, often in collaboration with their sibling endeavor, River Partners, is a model in getting high-quality source-identified seed for the right places in the face of increasing urgency for restoration, but also increasing hope as to the impact of restoration. Listen in!
