Learn how to collect and plant milkweed seeds. Provide monarch habitat and plant this fall. The beloved monarch has suffered a steep decline, in only a few years, largely due to milkweed habitat losses. The milkweed family is the only monarch caterpillar host plant (their specific diet). No milkweeds = no monarchs.
Learn the secrets to successfully planting milkweed from an experienced nursery grower.
To get you started, a variety of milkweed seeds will be provided. Kid friendly! $5 donation per person or family. Preregister and reserve space by contacting Vicki at 612-232-8196 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The workshop will be held at Lake Nokomis Recreation Center on Saturday, October 10 from 1:00 – 2:00 pm.
