Session 5: Instrucciones de la bomba de semilla | 2:15pm - 2:45pm

Las bombas de semillas o bolas de semillas son una forma antiquísima de propagar las semillas de las plantas que no requiere de ningún trabajo o labor previa sobre el suelo. Esta técnica viene del Masanobu Fukuoka (agricultura natural). Las bombas de semillas no se requiere laboreo, por lo que se ahorra mucho tiempo y esfuerzo. Además es muy útil y fácil de usar esta técnica, que además de haber sido utilizada en la agricultura natural servía para repoblar y ayudar a conservar la flora autóctona. Toda la familia puede participar, por ejemplo, los ninos, padres, or abuelos. Por supuesto, también es óptima para usar en nuestro jardín y huerta ecológica.

Session 6: Recycling for Kids | 3:00pm - 3:30pm
