Air Wick is partnering with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to reseed one billion square feet of native wildflowers in the Northern Great Plains. To achieve this, the two organizations are calling on locals to help. Those who are willing to help will receive a packet of wildflower seeds delivered to their doorsteps for planting. Further, you can also help by sharing pictures of wildflowers planted in your garden via their hashtag.
You do not have to be an avid gardener to receive the seeds. Even if you are just a beginner, you have a chance to participate in the reseeding program. You will receive free seeds delivered to your doorstep when you fill out the signup form to receive free wildflower giveaways. On the form, you are required to provide information on the types of wildflowers that grow in your locality. Once you submit the form, the flower seeds will be sent to you for planting with instructions to follow.
Further, local gardeners can collaborate by simply sharing photos of their gardens. When at-home gardeners share photos of their wildflower images using the hashtag #SquareFoodSuperBloom, Air Wick and WWF will plant up to one square foot of flowers in the Northern Great Plains. You can share our pictures any time from today to June 1.
Air Wick and WWF have partnered up to heal the Northern Great Plains, the largest ecosystem in the United States. The ecosystem has experienced over 33 billion acres of habitat loss in just over 10 years. As of 2021, Air Wick had planted 50 million square feet of wildflowers in the US. The collaboration will see AirWick plant over 1 billion square feet of wildflowers by the end of 2024. All the flowers planted are native to the regions where they are grown.
When any person submits the form and receives the flowers, they are required to scatter them in well-prepared soil in an area that has access to sunlight. The ground should be well-watered until the flowers sprout out and grow to a height of over four inches. In case there is no rainwater, you will have to keep watering until nature takes control of the process.
