Watching plants grow can be fascinating, especially when you plant the seeds yourself. It’s also a great learning opportunity for kids. They can experiment, study, and record their experience in growing plants. But what about adding a little mystery to the lesson by planting paper?
Plantable Seed Paper
Plant Paper and Watch it Grow…
Planting Paper products from Davita: Recycled Goddess are embedded with a mix of organic wildflower seeds including: cornflower, siberian sunflower, shasta daisy, california poppy, blanketflower, rose mallow, blue flax, scarlet flax, black-eyed susan, catchfly, white yarrow, foxglove, baby snapdragon, evening primrose and many more. These plantable seed papers provide a great learning tool when it comes to classifying plants. Stop by your local library to check out a book on Wildflowers in America, pull out your child’s field journal, and let them observe their new plants.
Behind the Brand
– an earth-friendly papermaking studio –
Jamie McCoy, owner and maker of Davita: Recycled Goddess, is an environmental artist that creates plantable paper, upcycled art and seed bombs from junk mail and scraps from other paper projects. Her plantable paper and seed bombs are available in any quantity or color, a great way to customize your lesson plan. Her company is very Earth-friendly from product to packaging. She reuses shipping materials when available and even walks to the post office when weather and time allows – now that, is going to extra mile!

In this paper little seeds lie in wait
To be planted in your garden or, perhaps, near your gate.
Find a nice spot and cover with a quarter inch of dirt
… And a little bit of water sure wouldn’t hurt!
Soon you’ll spend a beautiful day under the sky
In your new patch of flowers, like cosmos, daisies and catchfly!
