Making Seed Bombs | FREE

FREE

While you’re browsing through local vendors at the Vizcaya Village Farmers Market, stop in at the Kitchen Garden for a hands-on family activity to make seed bombs. First-come, first-served. While supplies last.

What is a seed bomb?

It’s important to start with what seed bombs aren’t: they are explosive and they aren’t for eating! A seed bomb is a little ball made up of a combination of seeds, clay and compost.

Why seed bombs?

Seed bombs are fun ways to engage little hands in making, in gardening, and in getting a little dirty. The compost and clay act as a carrier for the seeds so you can throw them – into your yard, window box, railroad tracks … anywhere! They can be launched over walls or fences, and the clay and compost help protect the seeds so they don’t fly away in the process.

How do they work?

Make the seed bomb. Decide where to throw it. Throw it! As it rains, over the course of a few weeks, the compost and clay break down, nourishing the seeds until they’re mature enough to grow freely and on their own. As the seeds germinate, you’ll start to see them sprout and soon you’ll have your own flowers and produce to enjoy!

Here’s a great resource for more information on seed bombs.
