Students from La Petite Fleur in Galle make seed bombs to celebrate World Environment Day.

La Petite Fleur, an international school in Galle, organised an event to spread ‘seed bombs’ in Galle and across the country to mark World Environment Day which fell on June 5.

Seed bombing is a way of deliberately dispersing seeds, while being considerate of wildlife and natural habitats.

Seed bombs are seeds wrapped in a blanket of earth which acts as a carrier for the seeds and enables them to be launched in areas that are physically challenging to access.

Because of their size and strength, they can simply be thrown over to where you want them to grow. The risk of damage to the seeds is minimised because the blanket of earth offers protection from harsh weather conditions and seedeaters such as mice and birds.
