hi maggie.  this looks like it is over, but i read the site and it looks like it was a wonderful program.  i will keep an eye out for it for next year. 

when i was looking around to see if maybe that was last year's site, it seems the environmental activists are not happy with cheerios.  they say this campaign is just about trying to detract from the fact that they are a major purchaser of grain products that are treated with the pesticides that are killing the bees to start with.  they are just trying to get folks to give the bees alternative sources instead of working to remove the pesticides that are killing them.

either way, it was nice they gave away seeds.  thanks for the info!

I am sorry the offer is over.
 I was able to get my request  for the free seeds in.
What I will do is try and save  some of the seeds from the flowers they produce and I will send you some Chips.
