An American artist had a brilliant idea: making books filled with frozen seeds for reforesting riverbanks and preventing flooding. Now a California company, with the same enthusiasm for encourage the fertility of the planet, is producing “Seedles” seed bombs designed to be sewn on any open ground. The company’s goal is to grow 1 billion wild flowers to support the proliferation of bees.

The seed bombs are made with wild flower seeds, that is, with seeds not already patented by genetic hackers intent on taking over the world. Current scientific thinking holds that three key factors in the decline of bees include the abundance of certain pesticides, genetically modified seeds and an absence of field flowers. Seedles seed bombs are available for six different regions of the United States, and with all of the favorite flowers of the local bees.

Seed bombs can be thrown anywhere. In vacant lots, on median strips, or planted in pots, with the help of rain and some sunshine, they’ll begin to germinate. The company is also partnering with local food companies to give away seed bombs and to generate awareness of the connection between bees and food. This simple, great idea could be the beginning of a true guerrilla gardener movement.
