Earth School Activities

Make Your Own Seeding Balls

Come learn about the programs and sustainbility practices at Cascadia College. Our campus is focused on permaculture and mixed plantings - native and introduced. Seed bombs are simple easy to make seeding balls of soil, clay, and seeds. People can take wildflower seeds, roll them out to a ball, and seed them into their own gardens and neighborhoods (often by throwing!) to promote more pollinator supporting plants and seed more areas.

Color with Seeds!

Come learn about the importance of pollinators and native plants through coloring activities and a seed match game. Want to let your creativity run free? Create your own peice of art out of seeds!

Ask a Master Gardener

Highly recognized, diverse and fully supported, WSU Master Gardener volunteers in King County are the go-to resource for home gardeners seeking research-based, innovative solutions for their horticulture and environmental stewardship questions. We are able to advise you on a variety of issues you may face in your home garden space. This might include how to select the right plant for the right space, management of plant health in both ornamental and edible gardening spaces, water conservation and soil health, and growing healthy vegetables. We meet the public in our "Ask a Master Gardener" plant clinics, and also teach a variety of online programs.
