[Fwd: Re: CYBERPARK:[Fwd: Seed "Bombs"]]

News from the CYBERPARK mailing list (cyberpark@treebranch.com)


I remember speaking to Liz Christie (sp?), who I guess was one of the 
founders of Green Guerrillas and while I don't have a detailed recipe she 
told me there were two problems with the seed-bomb campaign, especially in 
city lots:
1.The soil is often hard and not particularly receptive to seeds.
2. And this is related to the second problem. Because soil is so hard the 
seeds and seedlings will to be watered.

That is not to say that seed bombs shouldn't be used, but you may have to be 
a little selective in chosing sites. 

As for the recipe, I don't think you want to make sure the thing is seeds 
floating in a generous amount of water so that when the balloon lands, the 
seeds gush out through the opening.
