Seed bomb workshop

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Seed bombs are a tool of guerrilla gardeners to inconspicuously establish plants. I've never made them before but I've seen recipes and they don't look too hard. Maybe we can pool some extra seeds we all have and make some seed bombs.

    I would like to attend this depending on the date and time it will be held in the future.

    seed balls could be friendlier. i've gathered that the balls should be sized to the seed you are using. too big means tiny seeds may get lost.

    Great idea but with major drought will seed bomb be able to germinate and survive with no rain? I still want to do this meetup!

      If you're using native seeds in the seed bomb then they will germinate at the right time of year once they've received the right amount of water. Plus, they will be more adapted to the dry/wet cycles of the seasons in the climate you plant them in.

    I'd love to do this! I don't see a date/location yet. I could host at my home downtown if needed.

      I live in midtown and no car so your place sounds great! So many times premier guild events are at places too hard to get to by RT public transit. How big is your backyard? 5 year waiting list for midtown community garden plot so I am looking for someone in my area who needs a volunteer to help with th garden. I have 75 packets of antique heirloom open pollinated organic seeds but no land to plant them. I also know how to raise chickens. Interested? 448-1253. Colleen whalen

    I would be happy to help set up in someone else's house or host it on my patio in Carmichael. We can also expand it to a seed or plant exchange. Have a large back patio and yard. Need to know who to contact.

    When doing the seed bombing, you need to make sure you're using seeds for native plants and non-invasive species. We don't want to spread the wrong type of plants while we're trying to beautify an area and bring in more nature.

    where do you want to sow which kinds of seedballs?

    i gather that the size of the balls is partially determined by how big the seeds are.

    How about making wildflower seed bombs to bloom in the spring? I will suggest this tomorrow at the meet up

    I would love to learn more about seed bombs. Do you have someone who knows the ins and outs of them? Where do you get the clay for them?

      Possibly Sacramento clay soil might work...though it would be an experiment

    My community garden in Midtown is big enough to hold a meeting in our common area. 19th Street - between F & G Streets. I have the combination to the lock on the gate. There is a big picnic table in the common area and chairs for folks to sit. [masked]th Street. Let me know the date if you want to use the 19th Street Midtown Community Garden. It is close to public transit for folks who don't have cars. Anyone interested in joining a community garden? Wait list info is posted on the gate.

    I drive by a spot that I grumble needs a community garden and Blair suggested I guerilla garden the area. Not brave enough to do it alone but as a group... I'm IN! If recipe calls for worm castings, I'll donate!
