Happy Saturday folks! Today is the day that ACCo launches our new Project Wildflower, where we'll be delivering free wildflower seed packets to anyone in the Austin community so that together we can all make our city extra beautiful next spring. Check out our latest Instagram post for more information, and if your interesting in getting a wildflower packet delivered to you, fill out our delivery form here :)
If you have a spot in the city that you already know you want to plant your wildflowers at, great! But if you don't, not to worry, because here are ACCo members' favorite spots in the city that we think would be perfect for scatting your wildflower seeds.
ACCo's top tips on planting wildflowers this year: 1. Go hiking along the greenbelt and scatter some seeds there! Look for areas with at least some sunlight (not foresty spots). 2. Plant in your favorite neighborhood park. As long as there's moderate sunlight and a somewhat open space to drop the seeds, planting right in your neighborhood is a super easy way to contribute to the biodiversity in your area :) 3. Make a wildflower seed bomb! Making seed bombs is easy and you get the added bonus of getting to throw them out the window (wherever there's open space by the side of the road... preferably not at other cars or pedestrians!)

As long as it's a safe spot to be standing, road medians are a great place to plant wildflowers, and easy to find. 5. Plant them in your front yard! Everyone on your street will be glad that you did, and you'll get to see them every day! there's no shame in staying close to home :)
