Seed bomb my patio

You can bomb my patio, as long as you promise to use seed bombs.

Over the weekend, I attended a food event called the Eat Real Festival, in Culver City. While there, I met a guy named Danny, the Co-Director of COMMONStudio, an interdisciplinary design studio also located around the corner in Culver City, California.  Among other things, they make a product called “Seedbombs” a kind of hand-crafted clay projectile meant to be tossed into abandoned lots, gardens, sidewalk potholes, and yes, even my patio.

Already I was intrigued.  I had seen re-purposed bubble gum machines around town selling these clay balls, but I hadn’t stopped to read the story and the purpose of these little round seed bombs.

When I mentioned Toki’s dog blog, Danny also pointed out his special seed bombs for pets – filled with dog and cat greens!   He kindly game me a few dog and cat seedbombs to try out, and I’ve planted them in my patio.  I figure if they can sprout in an abandoned lot, they should be able to sprout in my unused planter.

I will report back on the progress of my bombs, once they start to sprout.  In the meantime, if you’re interested in trying out a few of your own (or maybe just want an excuse to use a slingshot), you can purchase these babies online, or find them at the nationwide locations listed here!
