The Great Seed Bomb Workshop - F.A.R.M. Urban Park @ F.A.R.M. Urban Park | Dallas | Texas | United States

Join The Great Seed Bomb as it rolls across Dallas!

Join the Great Seed Bomb for a series of free wildflower seedball workshops from Nov. 11th – Dec. 9th!

Participants and volunteers will learn how to source materials and manufacture seedballs by hand and with a tumbler; get acquainted with Dallas’ urban farm and conservation leaders on their own turf; and, practice their new seedball making skills with materials that will be used to jumpstart a pocket prairie along the Trinity Forest Trails.

This is your opportunity to be a part of creating a living (and life-giving) art installation that will sustain itself for years to come.

The BOPA Mobile

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) poses a threat to the environment, such as our streams and rivers, if we send it to the landfill.  Items considered HHW should never be placed in your trash or recycle bins.  The most common types of HHW are Batteries, Oil, Paint, and Antifreeze (BOPA).  The City of Dallas has created a special service for its residents to dispose of these items – the BOPA Mobile.  You may have seen this truck in different locations throughout the city, collecting batteries, oil, paint, and antifreeze from residents.  The BOPA Mobile operates rain or shine.
