14 neighbors want to arm Memphis School kids with "SeedBombs" in Memphis.

Having spent some formative years in TN, I would be willing to donate some "SeedBombs" to Memphis school kids to bomb highway roadsides, sidewalks, medians, vacant lots, or even their own back yard. Seed Bombs are made in Boulder, by my seed paper company Bloomin. Each one is handmade from recycled, post-consumer pulp that is embedded with wildflower seed. They are a fun and educational way for kids to get involved in gardening and will help beautify the cityscape. It is a very elementary form of gardening, but once kids see the fruits of their bombs starting to blossom, there is no telling where it might lead.

How can you help?
