Making of Seedball

Making of Seedball April 2010 in association with YI (Young Indians)

Easy Steps to Make Seed Bombs (Balls)
  • Sieve Peeli Mitti (Yellow Soil).
  • Mix equal portions of Peeli Mitti & Soil Compost.
  • Add little red chili powder/Boric powder. (This prevents insects from eating the seeds).
  • Add a little bit of moss to the mixture. Moss acts as a binding agent.
  • Lastly add water to the mixture and make a firm dough.
  • Take a small portion of the dough, roll it between your palms & flatten it.
  • Place 2-3 seeds in the center of the dough and again roll it between your palms.
  • Grass seeds can be added if available, as grass helps reduce soil erosion.
  • Flatten the ball & you are done.
  • The size of the seed bombs should be about 1 inch in diameter.
