Seed Balls are a method inspired by Masanobu Fukuoka (author of One Straw Revolution) for planting without tilling or planting in harsh environments. Bring seeds if you have them and we will make a variety of seed balls with the mixture of seeds on hand. Then we will walk around Inspiration Farm and talk about natural orchards, food forests the Fukuoka method and more.

Ah, man. I'd love to come - would be a great opportunity to check out Inspiration Farm, but I have class all day - shucks. ;(
