SeedBomb today, Wildflowers Tomorrow

See also

Is there anything more depressing than a week of grey, rainy weather in Southern California? Yes! It’s

seeing that the only things sprouting in those abandoned empty lots under our myriad overpasses and

utility buffers are invasive weeds. There’s a way that you can Guerilla Green them, though, on a short

walk!

The answer could be SeedBombs. Made of a mixture of clay, compost and wild flower seeds, these

marble-sized balls look nothing more than a clod of “dirt” (which any soils major will tell you dirt is

simply soil out of place). Now gaining popularity as company eco-giveaways and event swag, these

SeedBombs come minimally packaged with a fully recyclable tiny plastic bag and cardboard insert with

instructions (Generally, “Unwrap…throw”).

The trial run today is a GreenAid SeedBomb, handed out by Antioch University, Los Angeles. It

encourages users to “combat the forgotten grey spaces you encounter.” It found its home on a

forgotten stretch of back muddy alleyway that office workers quickly shuffle past on their lunch time

walks near LAX.

This mix includes Mountain Brome, Lupine, Bluehead Gilla, Five Spot, Innocence, California Poppy, Tidy

Tips, Blue-eyed Grass, Dessert Bluebell, and White Yarrow. Though you’ll need to wash your hands after

your guerilla greening walk to avoid staining your button up work shirt, they are the fastest gardening

you can get away with in a work day.Here’s looking forward to the rest of the grey, SoCal Rainy season,

bringing the bleak alleyway springtime flowers!
