SEED BOMBS by CITY GARDENER

Seed bombs are walnut-sized balls made from ecologically sourced seeds, soil and clay. This special mix means that there’s no need to plant them – seed bombs can be dropped, thrown, rolled or slingshotted anywhere. The next rain will activate the seeds inside and allow them to grow.
There are many stories of the origins of these little life-givers. Some believe they started with the ancient Egyptians, who flung them into the muddy plains of the River Nile. Others believe the technique was designed by Japanese scientists to protect seeds from hungry birds and insects.

We know seed bombs best from their use in the 1970s. Urban families would cast them around their cities and towns to protest the ever-expanding concrete jungles they lived in. The Increased vegetation would help decrease air pollution, encourage native wildlife, and provide a healthy, local food source.

Use seed bombs for many of the same reasons. Too often, we read news of falling butterfly and bee populations. Help replant the wildlife that helps these wonderful little pollinators grow and thrive. Also, its fun finding the most imaginative place for an impromptu garden.
