I picked up a seedbomb at my friend's furniture store. I felt like a kid searching for the last two quarters in my pocket to put in the dispenser. I have been carrying it around in my tote bag on the search for the perfect empty lot to toss the clay mixture and create a little bit of greenery. I fell in love with the easy and inexpensive way to contribute to restoring life to downtown's forgotten areas.

The seedbombs are a mixture of clay, compost, and seeds and cost a mere $0.50 (if purchased from the candy dispenser). I want to gather a few friends and each purchase a handful of seedbombs and set out on a mission in downtown Los Angeles. It could be a smart way to give back to the community during the holiday season. Who is with me?
