Seed bombs are the arsenal of guerrilla gardeners. The small, clay, seed-filled balls are catapulted over fences to reclaim vacant lots and garden in spaces you can’t access.

Greenaid is a social enterprise that employs formerly homeless or economically disadvantaged citizens in the Los Angeles area to hand-roll seed bombs.

Choose from a regionally appropriate grass and wildflower mix or seeds for an edible garden. Use the slingshot to safely seed bomb an area and stay out of reach of the long arm of the lawn. (Greenaid Seed Bombs & Wooden Slingshot, $15)
