Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Seed bombs: Greenaid vending machines

Greenaid is an organization focused on supporting seed bombing, which is a way to plant flowers or herbs in untoward spaces as a way to foster greening and beautification.

They've come up with "vending" machines that vend individual seed bomb balls made up of clay, compost, and seeds.

According to the map on the webpage, there is one such machine in DC and one in Baltimore.
