KCB presents seed ball workshop at Boys & Girls Club

Keep Cuero Beautiful presented a seed ball workshop to the Boys & Girls Club of DeWitt County July 25 at the Anna Koch Pavilion at the Cuero Municipal Park. Seed balls do not need to be buried or watered. Seed balls are perfectly content to simply lay about “sleeping” until the right amount of rain falls. Protected from predatory insects, rodents, birds and other animals, seed balls lie dormant until sufficient rains fall to start their germination. Cuero Record photo.
