Our Seed Ball Recipe:

What You’ll Need
1 tbsp native wildflower seeds
1 cup dry, finely crumbled potting soil (can be from your backyard!).
1 cup dry clay, such as powdered red clay
Water
Mixing bowl
Cookie Sheet
Newspaper

Assembly
Line the cookie sheet with newspaper
Mix the clay and potting soil together in bowl.
Add 4 tbsp of water and blend. If mixture is dry, add 2 more tbsp.
Roll into ~1” balls and set aside. Balls should easily hold together, but if crumbly, add more water.
Sprinkle seeds onto newspaper and roll balls on top of seed mixture, gently pressing seeds into balls. Try not to overcrowd balls with seeds.
Place balls on cookie sheet and dry for 24-48 hrs.
Store in a cardboard box.
Makes 8-10 balls.
