Seed ball pilot project

Posted Aug 05, 2020

Over the summer, we began a pilot project in coordination with the Maricopa Native Seed Library to study the success of using seeds balls as a method to add native plants to home landscapes. Seed balls are widely used, but there are few published studies about them. So we’ve teamed up to study their germination success in various residential locations throughout the Valley.

Thirty of our members and supporters are participating in the seed ball project. They “planted” the seeds balls at home in July and will monitor any growth over the summer and fall. We’ll keep you posted on what happens!
