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).
- Discussion about soil (sand, compost, mulch and clay), shells, rocks and plants.
- 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. Students work together to mix a blend of soil plus seeds. Each student will be invited to roll the seed bombs into shape.
Please note that this is a messy play workshop.
Plastic was a revolution for convenient living but what has been the cost?
In this workshop we explore plastics from where it came from and where it ends up. We look at ways to help clean up the plastic mess and how to reduce our own plastic use.
