My name is Zach and my home is the tristate of DE, MD, and PA, particularly Chester county Pennsylvania. I am interested in wild lands tending and plant rewilding -- gathering seeds of native plants especially and sowing them in wild spaces either to boost populations or to (re)introduce into the seedbank. I work with a lot of spring ephemerals like this, especially ramps, Virginia bluebells, trillium, woodland phlox, twinleaf, etc. I like to work with seed because it is cheaper, easier, more effective, and result in more resilient and adaptable populations than nursery propagated plugs. And I love diversity of all kinds, genetic or otherwise. I like to focus in particular on "human habitat plants," in other words those with edible/medicinal value to our own species. This includes chestnuts, oaks, fruits like persimmon and pawpaw, true lilies, edible starchy geophytes, etc. I love being with the plants and learning from them.
