Tonight was our seed pill vs seed bombing event through the streets of Shoreditch. About 10 enthusiastic individuals (a mix of seasoned and new gardeners) showed up at the meeting point in Hoxton Square to join Sam and Vanessa on the walk. After hitting all targets, we ended the night with a drink in a local pub.
U.W.A.C. is organising ElectroSmog Festival, an international festival for sustainable immobility, and has asked me to take part. Vanessa and collaborator Sam Varney, a graphic design student from Central Saint Martins, organized a seed bomb vs seed pill event in East London. The objective of this event is to introduce newcomers to guerrilla gardening, as well as to test the effectiveness of the seed pill in comparison to the traditional seed bomb.
Seed bombs are currently used as one of the various means of sowing seeds by guerrilla gardeners. The “Seed Pill” is a new version of the seed bomb (a ball made of clay, compost and seeds). It combines the efficacy of the seed bomb with a cleaner, smaller and more discreet design. Enjoy!
