Earth Day

Thanks for visiting the Omaha Metro Area Humanist Association booth at Earth Day!
On this page you will find instructions for creating your own seed pots from spare sheets of newspaper as well as a video detailing the instructions. These seed pots are environmentally friendly as they make use of existing materials which might otherwise end up in a landfill.  Also, once the seeds sprout, they can be planted directly into the ground still in their newspaper seed pot which will then decay naturally. By using existing materials to make your seed pot you eliminate the need to purchase one fabricated by industry thus saving energy and helping the planet.
