A Seedball is simply that – a seed inside of a ball of charcoal dust mixed with some nutritious binders. Seedball Kenya are focusing on helping reduce the costs of planting various useful indigenous plant species (mostly trees and grass) in Kenya.
The biochar coating of the ball helps protect the seed within from predators such as birds, rodents and insects and extremes of temperature until the rains arrive! Once soaked, the seedball will help retain and prolong a moist environment around the seed to encourage germination.
Simply put, we are giving Mother Nature a helping hand by protecting the seeds from predators and sun until the appropriate natural environmental conditions trigger germination.
When you book with Magical Skies, you receive a Seedball for you to give back to nature on your safari!
*Seedballs will not be allowed to travel with you back home. While on your safari give back to the beautiful surroundings around you*
