Making Your Own Seed Balls

Sunday, January 28, 2018, 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.


Join Nancy Clifton to learn a few ideas for making your own seed balls. Seed balls are small, seed-infused clay spheres used on bare soil and open areas to start plants. Originally used by guerrilla gardeners in urban vacant lots to grow plants in desolate open city areas, the concept can be used for anyone interested in gardening and experimenting with seeds. Clay balls can grow a mix of herbs, spring annuals and a cluster of lettuce. Learn the tools and tips for making your own seed spheres. All materials included in the class cost.
