No, these aren't animal droppings. These little round gems, known as Seedballs, are helping to reforest Africa.

Seedballs were one of our most memorable finalists of Index Award 2019; since then, they've made waves all over the world. From international features on virtually every major news network, from CNN to the World Economic Forum, to inspiring new Seedball chapters to open-up across Africa and Asia.

Seedballs: an innovative way to restore drylands

Trees were felled en masse by colonial administrators to fuel a train across East Africa, while land today is cleared for agriculture and charcoal production as Kenya's population grows upward and outward.

In a tranche of razed forest bordering the Maasai Mara National Reserve, a team of rangers scatter generous handfuls of "seedballs" around the bald clearing to give nature a fighting chance to regenerate.


It takes just minutes for the eight rangers from the Mara Elephant Project, a conservation group, to toss some 22,000 seedballs across this ravaged corner of the Nyakweri Forest, which was destroyed by charcoal burners.

 Children planting trees to create forests of the future

In October 2018, the DSWT launched a new project aimed at inspiring school children to start planting trees. The two-pronged approach involved a large-scale seed-balling initiative in Chyulu Hills National Park (CHNP) and a tree planting competition involving 731 school children from 4 different schools also bordering CHNP.

Kenyan schoolchildren using slingshots to plant trees  

Nairobi: Schoolchildren in Kenya are helping to fight deforestation by planting seeds using slingshots. It’s part of an initiative by the company SeedBalls Kenya, which makes and sells seedballs globally. It encourages children to have slingshot competitions using the charcoal-covered seeds instead of stones. About 2 million seedballs have been planted in Kenya in the past year and a half in what has been called “guerrilla gardening.” Kenya’s government has recognised the threat from deforestation and earlier this year imposed a temporary logging ban that was extended in May by another six months.
