Reforestation method Nendo Dango. It takes many trees and plants out of the climate crisis we find ourselves.
Fortunately we all have access to different varieties of native flora seeds, so it only remains to give a little help to grow better and safer.
That is what makes the planting method Nendo Dango, which means "clay balls" in Japanese. Masanobu Fukuoka was a pioneer in permaculture and natural farming, who had the idea of designing this type of highly efficient plant seeds.
The method is to make balls or discs with a mixture of clay, natural fertilizer (compost, vermicompost) and some natural repellent (pepper, thyme) and encapsulate the seed preparation.
The clay is dried, and the seed remains safe until the time when the humidity dispose its wrapping. The capsule at the same time serve to enrich the land where the future germinate tree or shrub.
With Nendo Dango, you get a 2% germination of seeds, while other systems is achieved with only 0.2% germination. You can find more information about the system and results in http://www.nendodango.org.
Inoculate Nendo Dango, is also an activity that kids will love: nothing more fun to put the hands in the clay, and make balls with tiny seeds inside!
