Seed Bombs

Seed bombs are one of the key “weapons” in the arsenal of the guerrilla gardener: a warrior of light who battles for a greener, cleaner, more beautiful and bountiful world, from rural farmlands to the urban jungle!  A seed bomb can take many forms, but i’s most basic is a ball of clay filled with compost and seeds.  Use local clay if you can find it and opt for local and native plants like wildflowers or indigenous edible plants.  You can find use the  Native Plant Database from The Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center at UTexas-Austin to find plants native to your area, and explore the internet or your local bookstore or apothecary for guides on medicinal and edible  plants in your region. You can forage those edible and medicinal flora once they grow, too!  Once you’ve figured out which plants you want to pop up, gather or purchase seeds (trade with friends too!) and make these simple devices of green revolution!  Once you’ve got them ready, keep ’em handy for abandoned lots and stream sides, country road ditches, or whatever bare place needs a touch of magic! The ground is most receptive when wet, so toss them after it rains!

 

You Need:

*Clay, preferably local

*Dirt (peat moss or local top soil)

*Seeds of native and wild plants

*Compost
