2018 Spring Seed Distribution is complete...

There will not be a 2nd' 2018 Spring Seed Distribution on Saturday May 19, 2018...there is no seed left to distribute.

 

We had a very successful seed distribution today on May 12, 2018.

Thanks for all the help from our Chapter volunteers and several PF cooperators who stayed to help us distribute the several tons of seed today.

A special thanks to Dan Hill at Montrose Orchard for allowing us to use his “Hoop Building” for our seed distribution. Kept us dry and warm....while we stored, sorted and distributed the seed, again this year.

"All our seed is basically gone and there will not be a 2nd distribution next week."

Now it’s time to plant and watch it grow.....🌻☘️🌸🌽🐝🐛

 We own a no-till drill for use to plant any of the seed listed above. There is a fee for the use of the drill which covers drill up keep and mileage to move the drill. CRP/SAFE seed mixes, PF grass mixes, or PF signature food plot mixes contact Jay. Questions and drill use can be directed to Jay at 810-635-7988 or jayblair@charter.net.
