March Potluck + Seedball-Making Party

Join us for our March potluck and skill-share party and be prepared to get dirty!  We will be learning the simple and effective art of making and using SEEDBALLS to add beauty and fertility to any landscape without the need for digging or tilling. Get some hands-on experience so you can share the technique with others!

For this family-friendly event, we will be sharing some potluck food at 6:30 and around 7pm we'll set up our stations for mixing clay, compost, seeds and water.  But first we'll talk about why you might want to make seedballs and how you might choose to use them!  Effective for no-till growing methods and also for beautifying and regenerating lackluster and abandoned places, seedballs are great fun to make and use!

Each seedball contains a "packed lunch" of initial nutrition in the form of compost so that as the weather and elements start to break down the ball, the seeds can germinate and get a foothold, even in challenging environments.

$5/per adult holds your spot, helps with supplies and supports ongoing permaculture education.  Kids under 18 are free (just note their attendance in the comments so we have a good head count).

What to bring: A dish or beverage to share for supper and your own potluck kit (dish/bowl/utensils/napkin/cup).

Bring or wear clothes that can get a bit dirty (and rubber gloves if you don't like getting dirt under your nails:)

Bring a tray or shallow container (lids to copy paper boxes are nice!) in order to take home some of your seed balls for final drying and deployment.

Join or login to comment.

    Help...sprouting seedballs! I obviously made mine too thick. Found them sprouting this evening. Any ideas what to do with them so early? They contain garlic, clover, wildflowers, and Three Sisters (squash, corn, beans). Photo posted.
