Harvesting Seeds-Leslie Tift
Mission Statement: “To promote and educate the public about the importance and benefits of landscaping with native plants and their role in the bio-community.”
Mt. Shasta Native Seeds is located in Mt. Shasta, CA, USA. Over decades this business gained its roots from collecting and propagating native seeds in a 50 mile radius of Mt. Shasta, which is located at the southern most edge of the Cascade Mountain range.
Through trial and error and 20 plus years of native plant propagation, Leslie established a diverse native landscape endemic to the flanks of Mt. Shasta. Her garden provides an abundant and healthy supply of native seeds and plants.
Mt. Shasta Native Seeds provides the following products and services: seeds, seed balls, plants, private landscape consultations and workshops.
Leslie Tift, owner of Mt. Shasta Native Seeds, has an extensive and varied background that includes a Wildlife degree with an emphasis in Botany and Ornithology; credentialed teacher in Natural Resources, Forestry and Outdoor Recreation; experience conducting native plant workshops; and participation in community plant restoration projects.
