2019 Festival Event:
Making Seedballs with Master Gardener, Tisa Watts
City: Upper Arlington
Be a Gardener: Seed bombs are small clay-and-compost balls imbedded with seeds (usually wildflowers but anything small enough to fit) that one can throw - with great enthusiasm - into distant or difficult parts of the landscape. Or you can just put them in a pot, or plop them onto regular garden soil. Rain and snow break down the protective shell of dried clay, and the seeds have a little compost to help them get established. It's a great DIY activity and connects us with other aspects of natural gardening. This program is being offered as one of the community events during the COSI Science Festival.
Tisa Watts, the Columbus Garden Coach, will provide all materials and demonstrate how to make seed balls. Attendees can make several small seed balls to take home and toss into the yard! Handouts available.
