Hey! I thought there was already a thread about this, but I couldn’t find one, so…

Hey Ride in Showers!

This is a seed bombing alley cat race. Riders will be given a bunch of seed bombs and will toss them onto vacant lots around the city.

We made like 200 seed bombs in my kitchen last night (normally you should give them a day or two to dry in the sun), so now you should come bomb the city with them and make it beautiful!

Show up at the wall at 4:30 today! Ten dollars gets you a commemorative J. McFadden t-shirt and all the seed bombs you can launch.

More info: here

Please come out, even if it’s raining! Don’t let the bombs go back into storage! They’re made from real hazelwood clay!

That is awesome. I had never heard of seed bombs before.

Wish I could make it, but I’ll be at work.

Sorry. Procrastination! Maybe someday we’ll do it right and advertise properly.

Seventeen people showed up and launched like 300 bombs into vacant lots across town. Super awesome! We might do it again next month. I’d be interested in trying to incorporate it with a critical mass, if anyone’s interested in that sort of venture.

I would have enjoyed this had I had more time. You should schedule a follow-up ride to the same locations, to check out the results.

I would have been into this, but 6 hours notice doesn’t cut it for me.

I know, I know, and I’m sorry, but do you ever leave this board? It’s been on the bike calendar for over a week.

Is anyone interested in doing this with the next critical mass? We can get more seeds and clay and have a bomb party on someone else’s kitchen floor, or we can just do it at my house because the linoleum doesn’t matter.

I love guerilla gardening. I hope a few will take root.

Could we attach names to faces in these pictures? I’m the guy with the camera.
