Ever heard of seed bombs?  First and foremost, ever heard of Guerilla Gardening?

Guerrilla gardening at it’s most basic is planting vegetation on land without getting the owners permission.  This can range from a friendly local gardener who just can’t help himself and takes it upon himself to pretty up a vacant strip of land;  to activists who utilize seed bombing and covert planting as activism.

Whatever your stance may be, Guerrilla gardening is undeniably a movement. It has become more and more popular all over the world with raised awareness of global warming and the Green Movement in general.  Guerrilla gardeners and urban green activists now have an even easier way to reintroduce vegetation to underdeveloped areas of land or underutilized private land with these tightly packed balls of seeds that can be purchased from vending machines made by The Common Studio.  They literally "bomb" the desired area with the seed packets and let mother nature take it’s course. 

For all of us out on the West Coast and Illinois, also check out this Google Map of available vending machines if you wanna get your seed bomb on!
