Comments Off on Seedballs: Marble-Sized Balls Packed with Wildflower Seeds for Guerilla Gardening

In 2010, a group of sustainability academics launched a global eco-social enterprise called  MAYA  to make sure their research would have real world impact. Now, the team has come up with a new way to raise funds for their sustainability initiatives whilst increasing UK wildflowers: Seedball . Each marble-sized Seedball is a mini-ecosystem in itself, where wildflower seeds are mixed with clay, peat-free compost and a smidgen of chili powder. When sufficient rain permeates, the seeds inside germinate — helped along by the nutrients and minerals contained within the ball — and the chili acts as a pest deterrent so the ball can degrade and the seeds can sprout. Each ball is approximately 1cm in diameter, making them easy to scatter. + MAYA + Seedball The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

New Seed Bomb McDonald’s Ad is Illegal to Remove Because It’s Made of Rare Poppies

Comments Off on New Seed Bomb McDonald’s Ad is Illegal to Remove Because It’s Made of Rare Poppies

This new McDonald’s ad that appeared on the side of the road in California has more staying power than any regular billboard because it’s actually illegal to remove.  The sign is actually the result of a  seed bomb ing where the shape of the famous golden arches is made up of rare yellow California Poppies. Designed by Sean Click , the McDonald’s logo looks like it’ll be there a long time since the poppies are illegal to dig up in the state of California! The  environmental graffiti is somewhat ironic, as it represents a food company not synonymous with a healthy lifestyle but be that as it may, the idea  of using the protected state flower is a bold, and very smart move. McDonald’s aside, the planted ad is innovative, fun and cost effective.
