Weapons of mass improvement

Ever felt powerless to brighten up your local landscape? Is the sight of neglected spaces and relentless concrete getting you down?  Instead of feeling despondent at the lack of natural splendour, we say arm yourself with a Seedbomb or five and practice aesthetic warfare in your ‘hood.

Developed by design-led social enterprise Greenaid, Seedbombs are a low-effort, high-impact way to turn grey to green.  A heady mix of clay, compost and seeds, the spheres can be casually chucked into any spot of earth or crack of soil that happens to break through the urban decay. Available in a variety of seed mixes and ripe for customisation, the Seedbomb is a non-violent protest for all occasions.
