All times are given in Central European Summer Time (CEST / UTC +2).

We mix various flower and herb seeds, clay and water, and make guerrilla gardening seedbombs to introduce more greenery into traffic islands, avenues and garden beds! Even one single field flower can feed up to ten insects like butterflies, bees or bumblebees – and they’re more than important for our eco system. Let’s beautify our environment! In our Home Delivery tutorial you’ll not just learn how to make seedbombs yourself, step-by-step, but also why they are so important for the reclaiming of public space.

Materials needed:
2 bowls

Recipe suggestion:
a few lumps of clay, possibly mixed with potting soil or worm humus
a handful or two of sand
very little water
Seeds: for example basil, lavender, pepperwort, marjoram, thyme, coltsfoot, verbena, crocus, eranthis, clove, columbine, chamomile, snapdragon, centaury, bellflower, milk thistle, poppy, cornflower, forget-me-not, rose campion, phlox, night-scented stock, gentian, comfrey, red clover, nasturtium, and hay drizzle
