Winter Sowing & DIY Seed Balls

December 10, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Please note, this event is for registered for Nature Initiative members only. To learn more about our youth program, click here.


Who says you can’t still garden in the winter? We’ll be taking the native seeds that we separated and planting them into trays. These seeds will need to undergo a process called cold stratification so that they will germinate in the spring/summer. Now is a great time to blanket these little seeds with soil and wish them luck. Another fun portion of this project will include making seed balls out of mud which makes a great gift for the holiday season!

We will be meeting at the Avalon barn located on Shep Jones Lane.

**Attention: This event will be taking place in the maintenance area of the barn which is located indoors. Masks must be worn at all times.

What to bring/further instructions:

  • Warm layers
  • Gloves for planting seeds (I will have extra)
  • Water bottle
