Make the trail your dog walks visible with this tool. By giving your dog a seedbag to wear it will spread seeds while walking around. In time a grown path of plants will be shown.
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Making the Seedbag
To maak the seedbag you first need an aluminium pipe, two plastic caps and a dog collar. You can remove the caps to fill the seedbag with seeds.
Step 2: Aluminium Pipe
You have to make holes in the aluminium pipe for the seeds to fall through. The size of the seeds you want to use are defining the size of the holes in your seedbag. I used a 2.5mm bore to spread small seeds.
Make two rows of at least five holes, that way you make sure the seeds are able to fall trough.
Step 3: The Caps
You have to make holes in the caps for the collar to slide through. Make sure the bore you use is the same size as the collar.
Step 4: In Use
If you put all the things together you can start using the seedbag. In generall you can use all kinds of seeds in your seedbag, but it depends on the weather circumstances and the condition of the soil whether the seeds will grow or not. It is also possible to use plants with a medicinal value.
Some plants you could use:
-chamomilla recutita (mayweed)
-rumes acetosa (dock)
