MILKWEED SEED COLLECTION AND DISTRIBUTION PROJECT SUNDAY OCTOBER 15TH
Collect ripe milkweed seed pods (only Common Milkweed and Marsh Milkweed please). Place in a paper bag, not plastic, as plastic can cause the seed pods to become damp and moldy.
Bring seedpods to Captain Joe and Sons on Sunday morning between 10:30 and noon. Captain Joes is located at 95 East Main Street, East Gloucester.
If you’d like to distribute seeds, meet at the dock between 10:30 and noon and I will show you what to do.
NOTE: It is easy to tell when milkweed seedpods are ripe. The seeds inside turn brown. Do not collect the pods when the seeds are white or green. If you pick them too soon, they will never be viable. You can check the seed pods by slitting the pod a tiny bit and peeking inside.
Any questions, please comment in the comment section or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and I hope to see you Sunday morning!
WE HAVE SOME JOE-PYE SEEDS TO GIVE AWAY, TOO!!!
We are excited to share that in addition to milkweed pods, I have seeds of an especially gorgeous, and fabulous pollinator-attracting variant of Joe-Pye to share at our Milkweed Seed Pod Distribution event.

GMG Jimmy was loose on the town today while I did some research at the library. He needed his glasses adjusted and the nice folks at Vision Depot helped him out (thanks Joe W!). Once he could see straight, he noticed the work on the tracks at the Gloucester station. What a job this is! Thanks guys for your hard work!
