Spring is coming to the northern hemisphere! Here's a fun and easy guide showing you how to make a guerilla gardening seed bomb.

Guerilla gardening is a global regeneration movement, bringing colour and life to desolate and forgotten urban areas. You don't need a garden to participate. Those involved take it upon themselves to brighten up neighbourhoods, roadsides and wastelands. 

As well as brightening up urban landscapes, guerilla gardening brings people together for a common cause. 

So why not get involved and regenerative your local area with these DIY seed bombs? With a mixture of compost, clay, seeds and water, these little 'bombs' are easy to make and will bring colourful flowers to grey urban areas. 

Don't forget to use seeds from native flowers to your area.

Everyone loves to garden because it means fewer trips to the store for fresh food. In fact, you can get a cash advance to help pay someone else to take care of anything. Your entire crop will be determined by the amount of pruning and preparing you do in the spring, so you need to make sure to begin getting prepared right now.
