Winter Harvest and Seed Bombs

My students today at Toluca Lake Elementary got their hands muddy with some Native Seed Bomb making.  They were troopers on this brisk windy morning.  I heard some apprehension about cold hands as I was explaining the lesson, but once we got our hands muddy everybody seemed too distracted to care.

We filled our little seed bombs with native California flower seeds.  Once “bombed”, they will be able to take care of themselves because they evolved in California climates.


After our hands were thoroughly washed we snacked on some broccoli flowers and arugula.  However, the winter crops are coming on so strong that after the kids snacked, I harvested a big basket of produce to take to the main office.   The staff were grateful, and ate most of it right in the office!
