The planet is the client

This issue is a reader for a particular, activist blend of architectural approaches to the environment. It establishes a bit of (tendentious) context; it defines, and redefines, and argues over certain terms, clarifying the attitudes behind them; it documents our mistakes as evenly as our successes, so we can really understand where we’ve been and where we are now. And since we’re still hoping, it puts forward new design possibilities—which we promise don’t all originate in the 1970s. Your help on that would be greatly appreciated.

How to Make Seed Bombs

The supplies.

Step 1: Combine 2 parts seeds with 3 parts compost.

Step 2: Add 5 parts clay.

Step 3: Moisten with water…

…until mixture is just damp enough to mould.

Step 4: Form balls the size of a $2 coin.

Step 5: Take seed bombs to residual spaces, throw, and let grow!

Seed bombs were one of the actions included in Actions: What you can do with the city, an exhibition and publication project we produced in 2008. We have also hosted several seed bombing workshops, most recently as a family program on Earth Day 2016.
