Lush: Seed Bomb Workshop
In celebration of Pollinator Week June 20-26, Lush will raise awareness for pollinators and how to protect them by hosting an in-shop Seed Bomb Making Event to make seed bombs on Saturday, June 25 at 12 pm, while supplies last.
A seed bomb is a compact combination of compost, clay, wildflower seeds, and water. Most seeds are very light and designed to travel in the air, making germination difficult for the seed, as it has no control over where it lands! The compost and clay of a seed bomb act as a carrier and blanket for the seeds to grow. Seeds in a seed bomb are likely to germinate and grow into the flowering plants that pollinators love.
Seed bombs can be dispersed in any area that has a bare patch of ground: around garden beds, walkways, disused areas of the yard, or liminal areas, like medians, along railroad tracks, parking lots, curbsides, alleyways, and anywhere that could be transformed into a pollinator paradise.
