How to Make Plantable Wildflower Seed Balls Program Guide


In this intergenerational program drawn from the Jewish Grandparents Network Family Room, families make seed balls and plant wild flowers.

Families will: 

  • Engage in a meaningful and fun multisensory Jewish learning experience as a family (children, parents, grandparents, other family members).
  • Understand that shomrei adamah, caring for the earth, is a Jewish obligation.
  • Learn to make a sustainable gardening project.

Ideal for grandparents to take the lead.

This guide includes everything you need: materials, room set-up, timing, facilitator script, links to resources on JGN website, and follow-up.

Visit the Jewish Grandparents Network Family Room for experiences and resources that help grandparents infuse their relationship with their grandchildren with Jewish culture, values, and traditions. 

You can adapt the experiences for family programs; see How to Create Your Own Program Guides Using Family Room Experiences (JGN)
