Workshop: Seed Pops

With Dana Perry & Danielle Moore

Close up of orange & yellow Calendula flower

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

In this workshop we will use all natural materials to hand make seed pops with calendula seeds for participants take with them and to distribute where and when they please.

Calendula has a bright yellow flower and is a source of food for pollinators, a treasured medicinal plant and an emblem of abundance. Materials for making the seed pops will be provided as well as a zine all about Calendula.

All ages welcome. Come get your hands dirty!

Sowing seeds in unoccupied spaces holds a global history, including the use of seed balls in 1970s New York by guerilla gardeners who wanted to beautify and create green spaces in empty lots and abandoned areas.
