Learn to Make Seed Pellets

April 6, 2013-April 6, 2013

Learn about “seed pelletizing,” an ancient method that was revived in the last half of the 20th Century by the revolutionary Japanese natural farmer and early Permaculturist Masanobu Fukuoka. Here’s the concept: mix seed with clay, compost and soil to make a dough-like conglomerate. Then push the dough through a screen to form pellets that encase and protect the seed. The pellets absorb and hold moisture. When conditions inside the pellet are right, the seeds can sprout and get initial nourishment from the pellet until the roots reach the ground and the plants take off.
