Tree Nursery Advertises for Seed Collector
The Little Assynt Tree Nursery has been invited by Royal Botanical Gardens Kew to join the Millennium Seed Bank Partnership. The Millennium Seed Bank Partnership is the largest ex situ plant conservation programme in the world. Further details about the UK National Tree Seed Project component of the Millennium Seed Bank Partnership can be found at www.kew.org/ukntsp.
Little Assynt Tree Nursery has agreed to collect native seed from 11 locally native trees and shrubs. Nick Clooney, Nursery Manager has been the key contact for the project. Recognising the extra work involved with Kew Partnership, the Nursery is opening a short contract for a Seed Collection Organiser.
