Planting seeds on rocks needs planning and hard work. It could take years before the rock turns into soil. That is ok. What is not ok, is if we hammer the seed onto the rock... Here are some tools from various organizations that could help you be strategic in your time of seed sowing. Know what to say, and what not to say - the latter being very important.
