“One Square Foot”

“The One Square Foot initiative invites people across the country to plant one square foot of native wildflowers to support pollinators and the ecosystems they inhabit. Planting just one square foot of wildflowers can provide food and resources for local wildlife and help revitalize the environment for miles around.”

Stop by the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street, Mount Vernon, on Tuesday, March 22 and pick up an adult craft bag. Limit 2 per patron. Free wildflower seed bomb making kits. Available while supplies last. Limit 2 per patron.
