Get seedlings to boost monarch butterflies
Friends of Adams Farm and Blessed Sacrament School will offer free milkweed seedlings from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday and Sunday, May 11 and 12, to anyone interested in helping the monarch butterfly by supplying this needed food in the garden.
The seedlings are being grown by children in 12 Blessed Sacrament classrooms, Friends of Adams Farm members, and local gardeners for distribution to the general public and for planting at Blessed Sacrament School and Adams Farm.
Incarnata is a perennial and does not spread like common milkweed does. It is a favorite food of the monarch caterpillars whose numbers have declined sharply over the last two decades. The flower is beautiful and fragrant. Supplies will be limited and given out on a first come/first served basis.
