SEED BALLS: PLANT IT!

Make the world a little greener with your own Seed Balls, small bundles of seed and compost.  The act of making and planting these (or randomly throwing) began as a way to encourage green growth in barren landscapes.  Green thumb or not, get your hands dirty and support the “greening” or flowering of your favorite patch of earth.  Your sprouts will attract hummingbirds and butterflies!

Best done with small groups or a rotation of small groups, this activity is a messy one!
