Make a Seedbomb

When you think of pollinators you probably think about honeybees. Honeybees are on the decline due to industrial agriculture, parasites/pathogens and climate change. The loss of biodiversity, destruction of habitat and lack of forage due to monocultures and bee-killing pesticides are particular threats for honeybees and wild pollinators.

This activity will teach you how to make seed bombs which is one method for creating pollinator friendly plants for pollinators to forage.
