Preparing seed bombs at Avery Point for Earth Day

Tabitha Jacobs, left, and Tiffany Rich, students at UConn's Avery Point campus and members of the campus environmental club, Eco Husky, make "seed bombs" Wednesday as part of the club's annual Earth Day festivities. The event, which included a number of demonstrations and vendors, had to be moved inside the new student center due to rain. The seed bombs are made of native wildflower seeds encased in a mud ball and wrapped in a biodegradable case (in this case, recycled newspaper) and are designed to be thrown into an area where one wants wildflowers to grow.
