The Ravenswood Manor Improvement Association is giving away free wildflower seeds to Manor residents! Visit bit.ly/RMIASeeds to submit your address and get a free gift bag with a wildflower seed mix dropped off at your house. Also keep an eye out for friendly volunteers at wildflower seed “pop-ups” throughout the neighborhood. Together we can make the Manor—already one of Chicago’s most beautiful and verdant neighborhoods—even more unique and incredible. The wildflower mixes include many pollinators for bees and butterflies. We hope homeowners will add these seeds to their corners, alleys, and yards to both #BeautifyTheManor and to help create a “pollinator pathway” connecting the Horner Park wetland area to the LaPointe Park native garden and the new pollinator areas along the river path north of us. The spring wildflower seed giveaway is part of the RMIA’s #BeautifyTheManor initiative. The hashtag will cover a variety of neighborhood beautification initiatives that you will be hearing more about in the months to come...and that we will need your help with.We are encouraging neighbors to plant their seeds in support of three of these initiatives—Manor Corners, Manor Alleys, and Manor Dead-Ends. For more information on these initiatives, handy planting tips, and information on submitting your amazing flower photos (and the public recognition and free Manor “flair” you may receive for doing so), visit the RMIA website: www.ravenswoodmanor.com. ...
