Seed bomb making

Went to Danielle’s yesterday to make seed bombs – but we called them seed balls cos that’s how we roll.

Seed balls are a guerilla gardening/permaculture trick to make sure the seeds you sow can withstand time, weather and hungry creatures. Contained by a mixture of compost, clay and chilli powder, the crazy mix of edible ground cover seeds should last a few months out in the field.

Our mix was one part seed, 3 parts worm poo, 5 parts bentonite (with sand remedy) and 3 parts water. Plus a whole bag of cayenne powder to act as bug repellent. It took 3 of us 2 hours to measure, mix and roll 650 balls. :D

I got 4 to take home. How excite!
