[Sarcastically]: Oh, hey Spring. Glad you could make it.
Actually, it’s too nice out for sarcasm. You win again, Spring. In honor of this beautiful sunshiny weather, we’d like to take a moment and tell you about Idaho’s only seedbomb vending machine, which sits right outside our door.
We learned about commonstudio‘s “GreenAid” project through a Kickstarter campaign that they did last Summer that enabled them to place machines throughout Los Angeles. We didn’t pledge, because already our wheels were turning about how we might round up enough money to get our VERY OWN vending machine for Boise. The answer, per usual, was right in front of us: Kickstarter! Duh! We waited until Spring to organize a small fundraising campaign, which was hugely successful–we met our goal within 3 days! The result is this awesome machine filled with little bombs of seed, which contain the following species of native grasses and wildflowers:
~Farewell to Spring
Sounds lovely, doesn’t it? We are super excited to reward the backers of this project who pledged at a $10 level with a handmade slingshot, with which these little dirt clods can be launched. We’re even more excited to be in the planning stages for the private party we’re having sometime in early May for the 15 backers who got in at the $25 level. Meanwhile, we’re selling these little beauties for 50 cents apiece – all proceeds from which will go toward replenishing our supply of bombs, and hopefully investing in another machine for a different location somewhere in Boise.
All that said, we encourage you to greenify your life in whatever way you can. If that means dropping two quarters in our machine, awesome.
See you soon…
