Seed Bombing 101by Staff on April 27, 2012
Last Sunday, April 22, was Earth Day. You may have noticed that we didn’t make a lot of noise about it — that’s because at Saatchi S, we believe that Earth Day should be celebrated every day, which is why we are celebrating with on-going activities.
Last week we celebrated by making seed bombs. Yes, it sounds menacing, but I promise it is more sustainable than it sounds. Think of it as guerrilla gardening: gardening done on the fly, anywhere and at anytime.
So what is a seed bomb? Imagine compost and flower seeds packaged compactly in a container of dry clay. These can be planted or literally “thrown” on soil to beautify a patch of land, public space, or even your own garden. They require minor maintenance and bloom into picturesque flowers. Are you interested in doing this yourself? Check out the instructions we followed.
Step One: Make seed bombs
Step Two: Air dry your seed bombs
Step Three: Find a flower-deficient location and seed bomb
