Project Maya Seedball

Description

Launched in May 2011, Project Maya's Seedball project aims to help increase UK urban wildflower and pollinator abundance.

Seed balls provide a simple and effective technique for growing wildflowers from seed and are based on work by the Japanese natural farming innovator Masanobu Fukuoka. Made with clay, compost and chilli powder, seed balls provide protection from seed predators and nutrients for early growth. As the seeds are encased within their own mini-ecosystem, there's no need to plant the seed balls - just scatter on top of soil or compost and let nature take over.

We give £1 per tin of Urban meadow mix sold to our urban wildflower creating pals River of Flowers. All profits from the Seedball project are used to fund Project Maya and its work towards establishing a network of global sustainability reserves. Project Maya seed balls can be purchased via our online shop, Amazon.co.uk, or from a select number of retailers across the UK. The range includes Bee Mix, Butterfly Mix, Urban Meadow Mix, Oxeye Daisy, Forget-me-not and Poppy.
