Workshop: Seed Pops
With Dana Perry & Danielle Moore
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.
Born in rural north Idaho, where she spent her childhood building homes for resident fairies, Brooklyn-based Dana Perry now spends most of her days gallivanting around Prospect Park with her daughter (who loves to wave at “baby mugwort”). She holds a certificate from ArborVitae and an MA in sociology from The New School.
Danielle Moore has 20 years of experience working in various aspects of horticulture and is still constantly amazed by the power of plants. As a job coach at the League Education & Treatment Center, she helps to organize a team of farmers with various developmental and intellectual disabilities to grow peppers for their own brand of hot sauce called BurnAbility. She holds a BS in Ornamental Horticulture and Environmental Design and a certificate from ArborVitae.
