Kids Series: DIY Seed Balls
Wed, April 19, 2017, 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM CDT
Seed balls (or seed bombs, as they are sometimes called by gardeners who lob them over fences and into abandoned lots) are a great way to plant seeds of all sorts in places you can't take close care of, such as meadows, roadside strips, and stream banks. Seed balls are also a sensible method for planting vegetables or grains without digging or tilling the soil, or add spots of new color in established flower gardens without disturbing the plants already there. This kids class is just in time to celebrate Earth Week, designed for children ages 5-10. Parents are welcome to come with, but are not required to, so enjoy the time to grocery shop alone! Kids will go home with a handful of seed bombs and instructions for "planting".
