For immediate release.

SUNFLOWER BIRD SEED AND OIL AVAILABLE AT BRODHEAD’S FIRE AND ICE FESTIVAL

The Southern Wisconsin Land Conservancy and local conservation partners are bringing their ‘Sunflower Truck” to the Fire and Ice Festival December 7 – 8 in downtown Brodhead, WI.

The bright yellow truck will appear in the parade and will be filled with 30-lb bags of sunflower bird seed harvested from the Three Waters Reserve, the former “front nine” of the Decatur Lake Golf Course.

The seed, along with 16-oz bottles of freshly-pressed edible sunflower oil from the same harvest, will be available for sale after the parade as part of a fundraiser to restore native plant communities and develop public trails on the Reserve.

The purchase of each 30-lb bag of seed or bottle of oil will come with a ticket to redeem at the cozy Halfway Café on the square for a delicious hot chocolate.

Other local non-profit organizations, food producers, and businesses participating with SWLC in the fundraiser will share proceeds to help fund the Reserve restoration and other local conservation projects.

Partners include the City of Brodhead Pearl Island Committee, Decatur Lake Mill Race Association, Green-Rock Audubon Society, the Prairie Enthusiasts, Lake Winnetka Sugar River Improvement Association, Riemer Family Farm, Ten Eyck Orchard, Brodhead Print Center, Consigny Law Firm, Halfway Café, Piggly Wiggly Brodhead, John’s Barbershop, Monica’s Hair Salon, Dick’s Repair, and Harris Ace Hardware (Monroe).

Other individuals, organizations, and businesses interested in participating in the fundraiser or in purchasing seed or oil for themselves or as holiday gifts can contact SWLC (Steve Apfelbaum, 608.897.8641, steve@appliedeco.com). Gift cards are available.
