Wildflower seed planting at Richard Carter Park, College Station, TX

Today, Saturday October 21st, A&M Garden Club members partnered with members of the local D.A.R. (Daughters of the American Revolution), Butterflies  in the Brazos, City of College Station, Keep Brazos Beautiful, and students from Texas A&M Department of Entomology, to plant seeds of wildflowers springtime pollinators.   Richard Carter Park is a historical area park where A&M Garden Club has planted native plants and trees over the years, and performs twice yearly maintenance of the plantings.  Between 20 and 40 people from the above organizations came out for coffee and donuts at 9:30 am, and seed sowing started about 10:00 am.  The City of College Station has provided Monarch Way Station and No-Mow signs.  The sowing was completed before the expected rains came, and it is to be hoped that when the rain does start it won’t be so hard as to wash out all the seeds!  This was a great community project, and all participants had fun!!!  More photos are posted on our Facebook Page.

And here is the action record of the “Seed Spreaders and Stompers”

This was a great community collaboration, under the leadership of Jane C.,  which will hopefully produce flowers for pollinators for years to come!  We provided coffee and donuts, and everyone had loads of fun!
