Waste papers are collected.
Water is poured on it and a while is waited for the paper to soften.
You can use a shredder at this stage if you wish.
Waste papers are mixed and turned into pulp. If there is excess water, it is filtered.
The seeds of the fruit or plant seeds are placed in the pulp and formed into a round ball.
The seed balls made are buried in the ground in a designated area in the school yard. This area is irrigated at regular intervals and observations are noted.
