Created by an LA based design firm, Commonstudio, Greenaid Seedbomb vending machines have slowly been growing through LA and make for some very innovative guerilla gardening.

“Made from a mixture of clay, compost, and seeds, “seedbombs” are becoming an increasingly popular means combating the many forgotten grey spaces we encounter everyday-from sidewalk cracks to vacant lots and parking medians.”

According to Commonstudio, “Greenaid is equally an interactive public awareness campaign, a lucrative fundraising tool, and a beacon for small scale grass roots action that engages directly yet casually with local residents to both reveal and remedy issues of spatial inequity in their community.”

Check out the video below and if you’d like to sponsor a machine, drop them a line here.
