Did you know that a mama Monarch butterfly will only lay her eggs on a Milkweed plant? Yeah, frankly, me neither…
But it’s true!
So this is where I point out that Sean Meenan and the Habana crew are *pleased* to bring to the FABfest this weekend your chance to make a Milkweed bomb! But what’s that, you ask?
Well, it’s a handy dandy combopack of soil and seeds that you can toss into an abandoned lot (yes, exactly – like a bomb). Or you can go less guerilla and just plant it at home. Either way, with a little time, Milkweed plants will sprout…Monarch butterflies will lay their eggs there…and soon enough Brooklyn will be flush with caterpillars and eventually butterflies! We may be city-dwellers, but everyone’s summer should involve butterflies. So there.
