Thanks to all of you who made seed bombs with me yesterday

I woke up this morning with stiff, frozen claws for hands, after a day filled with mixing clay and rolling out seed bombs. It started over lunch, with an intense seed bomb making session at a local school, and ended along the banks of the Huron, at the kickoff of Totally Awesome Fest. Thanks to the efforts of all those folks who helped out, we now have approximately 350 seed bombs, and I hope to more than double that by the time May Day arrives… Here are a few photos snapped throughout the day, some taken by me, and some taken by folks at Totally Awesome Fest… If you didn’t have a chance to help out, and would like to, let me know. I’m thinking about mixing up a few batches and going down to Water Street to roll them up into balls tomorrow morning.




Those who would like more information about Ypsilanti’s May 1 seed bombing event are encouraged to check out our Facebook page. Also, the audio quality is pretty terrible, due to the gusting winds we experienced a few days ago, but there’s now video on Youtube of native plants expert Jason Tallant and me, shot on Water Street, discussing the project with a school group… And, it’s not required, but, if you’re planning to join us on May Day, and would like to either RSVP, or share the event with your friends, you can do so here.

[note: The photo with the beer can was taken at Totally Awesome Fest, not at the school.]
