Seed Bombs spread more than seeds. They are actually part of a much bigger movement that is all about spreading greenery and bringing life and color to urban lanscapes or neglected areas.
Born from the guerrilla gardening movement that took shape in the 1970s, Seed Bombs were first used en masse by artist Liz Christy and the Green Guerrillas. Tired of Manhattan’s crumbling concrete sprawl, they began tossing what they called seed green-aids (sounds like grenades, get it?) into abandoned lots and run down urban landscapes.
While the Green Guerillas crafted their Seed Bombs out of balloons or even Christmas ornaments, many of today’s Seed Bombs are made using compost and clay wrapped around wildflower seeds – a method perfected by Japanese natural farming guru Masanobu Fukuoka.
At Botanical PaperWorks, Seed Bombs are made using paper pulp from post-industrial material to protect the seeds and retain water for germination. Like the Green Guerillas, we believe in making the world a greener, more vibrant place. This is why we use seeds of the highest quality and only eco-friendly materials.
Each Seed Bomb holds within it the power of change and retains the spirit of the guerilla gardening movement to make the world a greener (and better) place.
