Wildflower Seed Bombs 

Visit the IHM Center on Earth Day to help plant Native Wildflowers! 

Follow the signs, and then simply THROW a seed bomb in the designated area. 

What are Seed Bombs? 

A mix of recycled paper, native seeds, and beet juice (for color!).

What are Native Plants? 

A plant is considered native if it has occurred naturally in a particular area without human introduction 

Why Plant Native Wildflowers? 

  • Adapted to local environmental conditions they require less water, help prevent erosion, reduce runoff and flooding.
  • Don't require fertilizers and require fewer pesticides than lawns. 
  • Sequester, or remove, carbon from the air. 
  • Provide shelter and food for wildlife. 
  • Promote biodiversity and stewardship of our Earth.
  • Provide beautiful scenic views for us to enjoy!
