Seed Bombs for James River Park System

Let's get together and do some good work for our community on Saturday, April 5th from 10:00am – 12:00pm. 

Seed Bombs for James River Park System

We will be creating “seed bombs” for the JRPS and YOU.  These little “bombs” distribute seeds by forming and spreading little nuggets of clay, compost and appropriately-selected seeds that can be used to help green wasteland and otherwise neglected areas flourish into beautiful spaces.  Bring your friends and family and let’s get messy!

HackRVA will provide the supplies.  However, donations are gladly accepted as well.  

Supply List (from instructables):

• Crayola Air-Dry Clay (available at Walmart or craft stores for $5)
• Wildflower seeds (available at Lowes, Home Depot or garden supply centers)
• Compost
• Paper or plastic plates
• Newspaper
• Large gallon size zip lock bags

    Thanks Catherine. I am glad he enjoyed the event. :) Thanks to everyone who came out. It was a good time and will be appreciated by the Park System.

    I will collect seeds this summer from native local wildflowers, like tick-seed sunflower (tall, yellow blooms) partridge pea, and others. We can make more next year with free seeds, and home-made clay.

    Super-fun time. Thanks, guys! Duncan definitely wants to make more seed bombs.

    Air-dry clay is not hard to make. It is a blend of clay and paper pulp, and maybe some limestone. Newsprint is best, but for this it might be ok to use office shredder waste. "Wildflower" seeds for sale often include species not native to Virginia. I have found Siberian Wallflower at James River Park. The State has a mix including California Poppy.
