Seed bombs are little capsules with everything you need to grow a plant all bundled up.
They are a great way to introduce vegetation and beautification onto barren, abandoned, or otherwise inhospitable spaces.
Come out and learn about a fun, cheap and easy way to bring new light to this city that we love.

Please join us for the next planning meeting of Richmond’s newest community garden, at the Humphrey Calder Community Center, 414 N. Thompson Street, (Patterson & Thompson!), 7:30pm. All 25 plots have been reserved, and we are now onto a waiting list.
Spring is just around the corner!
Next meeting is Thursday Dec 4th, 7pm at the community center, spread the word!
The goal is to put a shovel in the ground in spring of 2009!
WATER: We are working with the Department of Public Utilities to waive the fee to bring water to the site, and with James River Air to install a backflow preventer and spigots. Goal is to do this for under $3,000.
FENCING: We are working with Parks & Rec to finalize the dimensions of the garden, and the design of the fence and gates.
COMPOST: Working on developing a way to create a community compost system, with input from Department of Environmental Quality
FUNDRAISING: We need to raise about $5,000 to pay for basic garden building materials & supplies. If you can donate, please hit the “Donate Now” button (look to the right), and specify “Humphry Calder Community Garden”.
Check out the article about Tricycle Gardens on the Richmond.com. Thanks to Dave Martin for writing such a nice piece.
