Please join us at a workshop for Wildflowering L.A. on Sunday, October 27, 2013 at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden at any time between 11am-5pm. If you would like to participate in the project, your attendance at one of two workshops is required to receive your free native wildflower seed mix from experts from the Theodore Payne Foundation as they explain how to plant and care for wildflowers.  While your attendance is necessary to receive your seeds, your time commitment at the workshop will only be about an hour.  

If you are interested in participating:
- You should have ownership of an open plot of land (or permission from the owner to plant) that is sunny and completely visible from a public street.
- Seeds are provided for areas from 500 to 2000 square feet.
- A 3’ by 5’ wood sign is installed on each site by the project team after the seeds are planted by the owners in November.
- Each site will be identified on a published map and photographed before and after for the spring exhibition.
Please email a photo of the site taken from the street or public viewing spot and the complete address for consideration to:

Wildflowering L.A. is a native wildflower seed planting initiative throughout Los Angeles County beginning in October 2013 by artist Fritz Haeg.

Wildflowering L.A. brings a wild and beautiful seasonal native landscape to open plots of land throughout Los Angeles County. 50 sites are selected from an open call based on public visibility and distribution across the county. Owners of selected sites are given free native wildflower seed mixes at workshops in partnership with The Theodore Payne Foundation for Wildflowers & Native Plants. Soil preparation, seeding, and wildflower tending is demonstrated and one of four custom wildflower seed mixes is prescribed – Coastal, Flatlands, Hillside, and Roadside â€“ inspired by Reyner Banham’s 1971 book, Los Angeles: The Architecture of Four Ecologies. Each of the participating sites is officially identified with a prominent carved wood sign. The project culminates with an exhibition in spring 2014.
