SATURDAY 17 SEPTEMBER

Dunedin

Pollinator workshop: SEED BOMBS!

10am-12pm

Te Oraka, 96 Anzac Ave

Pollinators like bees and butterflies need our help.

AAPES and SFYO are teaming up to bring you a wholesome workshop making wildflower seed bombs! Seed bombs are a little ball of compost, soil and clay studded with seeds, nourishing the seedling as it grows. There will also be a range of other activities, groovy tunes and yummy snacks.

I don’t know about you, but heading to the market and then making seed bombs sounds like the dream Saturday!

All welcome.
