Milkweed Planting Kit 2020
Did you know that milkweed plants are the only food that monarch caterpillars eat? ONLY Milkweed plants!

The Milkweed Planting Kit includes: 
  • Small container with vermiculite
  • Small package of five milkweed seeds
  • 2 peat pots
  • 2 peat pellets
  • Direction cards, and a brochure.
Target audience is youth grades 3 through 8. However, high schools students and adults alike will be surprised to learn that milkweed seeds need a 30 day cold, moist period before they germinate! A fun leaning experience for all ages.

The theme of our project is: Plant a milkweed, grow a butterfly! These kits are provided to you at no cost courtesy of a partnership with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, Iowa DNR REAP Conservation Education Program (CEP) Grant, and the Iowa State University Seed Science Center. Simply pay a nominal postage fee during checkout.
