SEED BOMB WORKSHOP
Presenter – Michael Chambers
Thursday, 15th June 3:30 – 4:30pm
Seed bombs (or seed balls), made from clay, compost and seeds, have been used as a technique for sowing plants for cen- turies. Recently popularised by the Japa- nese natural farming pioneer, Masanobu Fukuoka, gardeners across the world are now trying out this simple technique.
In this workshop you will learn how seed bombs are made and have a go at mak- ing some yourself. You will learn about the benefits of gardening with seed bombs, and you can take some home to try out in your garden! Bookings required. Please call 6861 2309.
