Join The Great Seed Bomb as it rolls across Dallas, Tx with a series of free wildflower seedball workshops from Nov. 11 - Dec. 9!. Participants and volunteers will learn how to source materials and manufacture seedballs by hand and with a tumbler, get acquainted with Dallas' urban farm and conservation leaders on their own turf, and practice their new seedball making skills with materials that will be used to jumpstart a pocket prairie along the Trinity Forest Trails. This is your opportunity to be a part of creating a living (and life-giving) art installation that will sustain itself for years to come.

Make a native bee house to attract beneficial pollinators to your garden. Did you know there are hundreds of native bee species in Texas? Most of them do not sting and are solitary.

Discussion and storytime accompany this fun and informative class appropriate for ages 3 to 9. Parents are welcome to participate. Free but please register here.
