The Seed Ball programme focuses on increasing green cover across India. The process involves making golf ball-sized mixture of soil, seeds and compost, and scattering it in suitable places for trees to grow.
Among many initiatives to improve green cover, making and distributing seed balls is a quicker and cost-effective method to reclaim the lost green cover of our environment. Hence, it is an emerging afforestation technique adopted worldwide, most commonly used for ecological restoration.
The composition of seed ball makes it self-sustainable and favorable for germination in most environments.
Make balls of seeds that are both fun to throw and an easy way to grow native trees. We invite volunteers of all age groups to contribute towards nature. From school students, college students to working professionals, all are welcome to join. And do not just stop with yourself – motivate your neighborhood to join the Green Movement with Bhumi.
This year, Seed balls were made across India as a part of Daan Utsav, from 2–8 Oct, 2017.
More will be made as regular weekend activity. For more updates in the event, kindly follow our social media pages.
