Seed Balls, also known as Earth Balls, are a whole habitat in a tiny clay ball, just need to add water and sun light. They are used to restore lost vegetation with native, non-invasive vegetation.

Join us for an event for the WHOLE FAMILY. Each participant will go home with seed balls as well as having helped construct a permanent spiral garden for the City of San Marcos and the knowledge to do so at your home.


Presented by Jim Bones, photographer, writer, and filmmaker, who will lead us through the hands-on process of making SEED BALLS as well as a SPIRAL GARDEN planted via seed balls. The garden will be a permanent structure at the San Marcos Discovery Center. You will go home with expanded ecological knowledge, seed balls of your own, and satisfaction of having helped construct a garden for all to watch grow. Check out both seed balls and spiral gardens on the web for more information.
