Sutro Stewards
2014 – $5,000 Living Seed-Bank Project

Sutro Stewards brings to life local open space areas, biodiversity, and the benefits that indigenous plant species provide to wildlife. They enable thousands of volunteers to help transform a sixty-one acre open space in the heart of San Francisco into a destination for exploration, recreation and stunning views.

The Sutro Stewards Nursery team is gathering locally genetic plants to place into a “living seed-bank” gardens. This “living seed-bank” provides seeds and cuttings in large quantities, allowing successful field planting projects. This project minimizes habitat loss by reintroducing species to new suitable sites.
