This free all-ages workshop takes you through how to make biology-rich clay seed balls that provide food for pollinators, humans, soil, microbes and plants.

Clay seed balls have been used for thousands of years as an effective technique for both the growing of agricultural crops and re-greening large areas of land with trees, shrubs, wildflowers and vegetables.

In recent times, they have been popularised through the Guerrilla Gardening movement. Throw them out into a meadow, under used land or place them with loving intention into your garden beds, through exposure to the elements they will sprout into life and grow into an ecology that will strengthen and support all kinds of life.

PLUS we will be running healthy soil/healthy water demonstrations at Silo Park, to highlight the building blocks of soil that makes it alive and thriving with diversity and in good relationship to support the wellbeing of seeds, plants and flowers and hold water – the essential ingredient for all life!

Workshops start at 12pm and will run until 6pm, so bring your whānau and friends down to Silo Park for a great afternoon.
