How To: Make A Seed Bomb And Transform Your Local Community

Seed bombs allow activists to sporadically plant fruits, vegetables, and flowers for community members to utilize.

Not only do plants make urban environments more appealing, they also provide CO2 and, according to some studies, help reduce the stress people experience. For this reason, one might imagine that modern cities would be overflowing with green flora, but this is anything but the case.

In many cities, it’s actually illegal to grow land in public spaces (just read about activist Ron Finley), regardless if the area is being used or not. In effect, a number of activists have begun creating seed bombs to secretly grow fruits, vegetables, and flowers for community members to utilize. This type of activism is called guerrilla gardening.
