A Wild Time with Seed Bombs

Silent Jessie gets ready to launch a seed bomb

We all let loose a little with slingshot in hand, we each took our turn at launching seed bombs around the parking lot and surrounding roadside of the HomeGrownRadioNJ studio.

An innovative and highly interactive design company called GreenAid has developed regionally specific, wildflower seed bombs to help green up some of the duller spots in our local landscapes. Better yet, they’ve also created vending machines and put them in places where perhaps extra seeds are necessary.

Got a wonderful package from them, including simple wooden slingshot to catapult the little clay balls full of seeds at will. Of course, GD Scotty got frisky and started pointing the seed-loaded slingshot at us at one point. Boys. Geeeesh.

GD Scotty sends seed bomb over the road and through the woods . . .

A perfect springtime activity! Doesn’t everyone want to get outside and fling stuff around? Why not fling spring around in the form of seeds? Brilliant. We quickly exhausted our munitions and will have to find the nearest seed bomb vending machine . . .

    I’m curious to know if this actually worked. Did any wildflowers pop up where you “bombed?” Or does it take a year? This is such a cool idea. I love it!

    Wonderful post!

    I love seed bombs too and can’t say enough about how useful I find them in my own backyard.

    They make sowing SO much easier, especially for seniors or long sighted people like me, who have a hard time with seeds and have to be very careful with sowing them.

    I was looking for them online and was a bit disappointed that most seed bombs are available as a wild flower variety.

    Finally, I found this wonderful site:

    http:\www.botanicalart.etsy.com

    They specialize in custom making seed bombs from specific varieties only. I ordered their Rudbeckia seed bombs and they started sprouting in a couple of days!!

    I look forward to some carefree sowing and gardening and plan to order more!!

    Hope this helps others get their early starts early!

Cafeteria Man

“All across America, school food is undergoing a major transformation to help reverse the childhood obesity epidemic — but not without opposition and challenges. CAFETERIA MAN provides an inspiring, behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to bring fresher, healthier food to the millions of kids in our nation’s schools. The film follows nationally-recognized chef Tony Geraci as he works to revamp school food programs that feed thousands of students in two big city districts — Baltimore and Memphis. Responding to the pleas of Baltimore students who were fed-up with terrible school lunches, Geraci was hired to replace pre-plated foods with tastier, more nutritious meals. But he didn’t stop there. To help students develop a better appreciation for healthier foods, he also established a model 33 acre teaching farm, brought in more locally sourced produce, and initiated student-designed meals. CAFETERIA MAN shows that it is possible to feed our nation’s students healthier, more nutritious meals, and provides inspiration and ideas to win the fight for better school food.

With appearances by First Lady Michelle Obama, noted food author Michael Pollan, White House Chef Sam Kass. "

Beauty and the Breast

“A first time documentary filmmaker offers a compelling insight into a devastating reality of breast cancer, as seen through the eyes of several female patients helping demystify the disease while painting poignant and often humorous intimate portraits of survival. The film depicts the process of learning and accepting the terrifying verdict, and details the complexities of every stage of this disease. All interviewed patients have different experiences living with mutilated bodies while still maintaining strength. This film is not only invaluable as a testament to human resilience but it also proves that it’s possible to blossom in the face of adversity. But as the fight continues, the wisdom and beauty within us can help us conquer the beast until we find the cure.”
