NOT DIRTY IT'S EARTHY
Do you love getting your hands into soil? How does it feel? Does it squish? How does it move between your fingers? Does it feel different when it's wet? This workshop is a hands on experience with soil. Students look at sand, clay and compost. Through touch and play we learn the story of soil from how it came to be and how it helps plants to grow. We'll be telling their stories, squish and squashing them, mixing them, adding water then making seed bombs (useful mudpies). Workshop Format - Discussion about soil - Touch and feel, squish and squash. A hands on experience of soil, how it moves and how it changes when it gets wet. - Time to stir together some seed bombs.
