Can you believe it?
Just six months ago, we set out to make 35,000 common milkweed seedballs. And, then the number was originally tossed out, we all sort of thought to ourselves, “Ha! Yeah right! That would be incredible!” with no idea of how far we’d actually come to reaching that goal. And, incredibly, with hundreds and hundreds of helping hands….
We’ve reached our goal! Over the spring and summer, we’ve held a couple dozen events with groups and public across the state of Iowa. These audiences have been incredibly interested in the story of the Monarch and her pollinator friends. They’ve wanted to know every single thing about milkweed and other nectar plants. They’ve been eager to roll as many seedballs as time would allow. And, by golly, we’ve done it!
Check out the page under RAGBRAI/2016 for pictures from some of these events.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO ROLLED A SEEDBALL AND IS NOW A MONARCH DEFENDER.
