The great seed bomb bike rideBy Julie Allen on December 17, 2016
Bike riders distributed 10,000 seed balls during The Great Seed Bomb on November 8 in Fort Worth.
The Great Seed Bomb Bike Ride is the brainchild of Jillian Jordan. After hearing the gloomy news from the media concerning the precarious state of bees and monarchs and other ecosystem disasters, Jillian decided to strike out and do what she could to take personal responsibility. She put her degree in marketing to work and founded the bike ride.
The ride is held along the banks of the Trinity River near University Drive and the seed balls will help to re-establish native flora on the river bank. In addition money raised through entrance fees was donated to the Native Prairies Association of Texas.
Our North Central Chapter in Ft Worth was one of the financial sponsors of the bike ride and conributed enough seed to make 5,000 seed bombs. They also set up a station along the trail and handed out water and information about native plants.
