- Activity “Seed bombs workshop”.
After meeting in Lithuania some local volunteers were inspired by little boy Luka from Zagreb. Luka was walking and throwing little seed bombs around Salakas. He explained that these bombs are helping for our planet to reduce CO2 and make the land greener. As we find out latter on internet – Seed bombing is a technique of introducing vegetation to land by throwing or dropping compressed bundles of soil containing live vegetation (seed balls). In 2014 June, we invited handicapped youngsters from Maguciai education center (Zarasai district) to participate in the in the workshop “Seed bombs”. With youngster we talked about different types of seeds, about how seed are traveling around the world, and made seed bombs.
