    1. Willamette Valley Native Plant Materials Cooperative

    2. Progress Report • National Seed Conference

    3. Progress Report • National Seed Conference • 5-year Plan Comments by May 15

    4. Progress Report • National Seed Conference • 5-year Plan • MOU

    5. Progress Report • National Seed Conference • 5-year Plan • MOU • Steering Committee Funding strategies

    6. 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.

    7. 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

    8. Progress Report • National Seed Conference • 5-year Plan • MOU • Steering Committee Funding strategies • Collection crew

    9. Progress Report • National Seed Conference • 5-year Plan • MOU • Steering Committee Funding strategies • Collection crew • Species Selection Committee Collection, cleaning, storage protocols 2014 recommendations

    10. Species selected for 2013 production

    11. Species selected for 2013 production

    12. Cost of 2013 production

    13. Species recommended for 2014 production

    14. Cost of 2013 production

    15. 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.

    16. 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

    17. 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.

    18. 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:

    19. 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?

    20. 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:

    21. 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

    22. Species recommended for 2014 production - Vote

    23. Next Steps • 2013 collection • Finalize MOU • Finalize 5-year Plan • Work on funding strategies • Production!
