Seed Bombs for All!


In a country where environmental concerns are growing by the day, it’s heartwarming to witness the power of community coming together to make a difference. Last Saturday was such a day, as an incredible show of support brought us together at Gnien il-Kunsill tal-Ewropa in Gzira, to create 1000 seed bombs, each carrying the promise of a greener, more vibrant future.

Seed Bomb

Seed bombs, for those unfamiliar, are seeds packed into a little ball of clay and soil. These eco-powerhouses contain seeds of various Mediterranean wildflowers, specifically chosen to attract and sustain pollinators like bees, butterflies and other insects. The idea is simple but profound: By distributing these seed bombs throughout our community, we aim to bolster pollinator populations and raise awareness about their declining numbers.

But what truly warmed our hearts was the active participation of our dedicated youth members. Their commitment to the environment is truly inspiring and their spirit shows the world that age is no barrier to making a positive impact. Their proactive efforts to improve our surroundings serve as a shining example of what can be achieved when young minds are harnessed for the greater good.

Seed Bomb Making

As we donated these seed bombs to our community, we knew that each one carried not only the potential for a bloom of wildflowers but also the promise of a better, more sustainable future. Our mission goes beyond these thousand seed bombs: it’s about nurturing a brighter, greener world for all. 

As a bonus activity throughout this event we also had an crafts corner where little hands practiced and learned how to make beautiful origami butterflies and flowers, keeping with the theme of pollinators.

Golden Island were very kind to provide their award-winning honey and we set up a honey-tasting corner, where visitors could learn about the different honeys collected during different seasons and also get to taste them!  Through this exercise visitors learned the importance of having abundant and healthy habitats for our pollinator friends throughout the year.

This remarkable journey reminds us that when a community unites with purpose, incredible things can happen. It’s a testament to the power of individuals coming together for a common cause, with the environment as our shared priority.

Here is to our community, to our passionate youth members, and to the thousand seed bombs that will scatter their magic across our landscape. Together, we’re not just sowing seeds; we’re cultivating a future where nature and humanity thrive side by side.
