Milkweed for Monarchs Invite
The Garden Club of Illinois invites Wisconsin Garden Club Federation members and any other gardeners to help increase monarch numbers. Their goal is to distribute 10,000 packets of milkweed seeds this year. Milkweed, of course, is the only food that monarch caterpillars will eat.
To get samples of three different kinds of milkweed and lots of information, send a stamped self addressed business sized envelope and $2 cash to: Garden Clubs of Illinois Milkweed For Monarchs Chairman Kay MacNeil, 689 Golf Club Ln., Frankfort, IL 60423.
To purchase 100 packets of milkweed seeds to distribute: $25 plus $5.00 shipping. Use the same address as above. She also has Save Our Monarchs drop boxes, ($12 box &postage) which hold the milkweed seed packets which can be placed in libraries and businesses.
