Seed Bomb Chestnut Park!




The Garden Posse is somewhat like squirrels and acorns in our behavior regarding seed bombs. We make them, and we horde them. Over a couple of fall seed bomb making sessions, we've accumulated an impressive stockpile. Now it is time to spread them.

This Tuesday, March 2, at 7:30 pm, we'll be meeting at Chestnut Park (16th & Chestnut) to divvy up our pile and seed bomb wherever needs seed bombing. On the map below you'll see the park and the garden. If you enlarge the map (meaning, make it so you can see a larger area by hitting that "-" sign), you can see three sites for potential seed bombing.

One site is nearby the MLK train site (hey, when is that train coming in anyway?). There are two more nearby, at MLK Blvd and Manor Rd, respectively. We'll check out these sites, spread our seed bombs around, and wait for the magic to happen. Seed bombs release their seeds when rain comes and dissolves their little package of compost and clay.

This shouldn't take more than an hour - maybe afterwards we can grab a drink! Hope to see you there.
