Funding Strategies

Opting in and sharing the products – How?

  • First few years – financial support of Cooperative not directly tied to the product
  • During the first five years – we will transition to a self-supporting model
  • Which model?

Working toward:

Choosing a model and creating draft plan by middle of 2013 -- then refine/adapt it as we implement it.

funding strategies1
Funding Strategies
  • Partners buy shares of the species they want to buy – receive percentage of total harvest based on number of shares
  • Partners buy seed directly – cost based on base price of seed plus cooperative costs including collection, coordinator, etc.
  • One of the above models plus supplemental funding by partners that are able to contribute more
  • One of the above models plus outside funding (grants, foundations, etc.)
  • Other possibilities
  • Steering committee will be focused on funding in 2013

2014 recommendations

elymus trachycaulus slender wheatgrass
Elymus trachycaulus (slender wheatgrass)

Attributes:

  • Successful in production
  • Not widely available
    • No WV-wide accession
  • Underutilized upland grass
  • Suitable for large scale production
  • Demand:

Partners would use 500# a year

Most partners interested

  • Potential concerns:
  • Short-lived perennial (recollection every 3
  • years if in continuous production) – can
  • stockpile seed from a big field and store for later use.
danthonia californica california oatgrass
Danthonia californica (California oatgrass)
  • Attributes:
  • Important matrix species in both upland
  • and wet prairies
  • Slow to establish in restoration sites
  • Demand:
    • 910#/year
    • Most partners interested
  • Current STZ recommendations exist
  • Potential concerns:
  • High diversity fields can be challenging to harvest
  • Available inventory not used annually
grindelia integrifolia willamette valley gumweed
Grindelia integrifolia (Willamette Valley gumweed)

Attributes:

  • Late-season nectar species
  • Will establish on restoration sites
  • Wet prairie/ditch/hedgerows
  • Matrix species
  • Demand:
    • 190#/year
  • Potential concerns:
  • Hybridizes with G. nana – avoid south valley and other known x nana pops.
lomatium nudicaule barestem lomatium
Lomatium nudicaule (barestem lomatium)
  • Attributes:
  • Insufficient production
  • Need better genetics
  • Nectar species
  • Host plant
  • Appropriate for both wet and
  • upland prairies
  • Demand:
    • 185#/year
    • Most partners interested
  • Potential concerns:
solidago lepida var salebrosa western goldenrod
Solidago lepida var. salebrosa (western goldenrod)
  • Attributes:
  • Underutilized prairie matrix
  • species
  • Very little production
  • No WV accessions available
  • Produces lots of seed
  • Late season nectar species
  • Demand:
  • May need to stimulate interest!
  • Potential concerns:
  • Weedy
  • Potential for overproduction?
madia elegans showy tarweed
Madia elegans (showy tarweed)
  • Attributes:
  • No WV-wide accession available
  • Important First Nations food species
  • Nectar species
  • Demand:
    • 70#/year
    • Most partners interested

Potential concerns:

carex tumulicola foothill sedge
Carex tumulicola (foothill sedge)
  • Attributes:
  • No WV-wide accession available
  • Need better genetics
  • Upland matrix species
  • Demand:
    • 55#/year
  • Potential concerns:
  • Has been difficult in production – can be grown for plugs with a smaller field

Next Steps

  • 2013 collection
  • Finalize MOU
  • Finalize 5-year Plan
  • Work on funding strategies
