Wild plants are the pinnacle of Organic. In 2015, almost half (43%) of the world's Certified Organic land was used for commercial wild plant harvesting and honey production.
We could increase this trend, which is almost undeveloped in North America. It is a solution for the future of remote areas, it could be the lifeline of the forest industry in Quebec. It could also be the famous Organic 3.0 that a lot of people are trying to realize.
For centuries Amazonian tribes have multiplied wild edible and medicinal plants in their jungle. We could do the same thing, but bigger with Seedballs.
Worldwide we should replant an area larger than all of South America, and this area is increasing rapidly. Unfortunately the usual planting methods are too expensive.
Some startups want to use drones to plant billions of seed bombs. Their recipes and methods of making seed bombs are secret.
SeedTheGlobe wants to democratize seed bombs. Our recipes and craft tools for making Seedballs are Open Source. This will allow small farmers to make Seedballs for a very low cost, and fight against global warming, by doing Organic Permaculture.
We need enough seeds to plant trillions of trees, plus all the other plants needed for productive and healthy ecosystems. It's a gigantic opportunity.
70% of the remaining biodiversity of the planet is on the Aboriginal tribes and Native people land. They are the best specialists of Superfoods and Wild Medicinal Plants.
We want to build a system of franchises of local craft business producing Seedballs, harvesting natural seeds, and sharing information.
As in many places around the world, the ecosystem and beauty of Margalla Hills Park are deteriorating so quickly that they lack the budget to replant with the usual methods.
In 2018 an oil company organized an ecological promotional event. Guided by park workers, visitors walking through park trails are invited to throw seed bombs made with trees and flower seeds. The seed bombs were made by Aboriginal people living in the park. The results have been so good that the WWF and the Pakistan Air Force want to launch seed bombs by plane all over Pakistan.
Since 2012 seed bomb technology has been developed by the University of Hohenheim in Germany and Senegalese and Nigerian Agricultural Research Institutes, in collaboration with several farmers' associations.
As the beginning of the rainy season is more and more unpredictable, farmers often have to replant the fields many times. Seed bombs improved seedling establishment, reduced labor demand, increased women farmers' participation and improved yields. The conclusion is that seed bombs can improve the lives of hundreds of millions of people.
The seed bomb market is well developed and has won several awards in the horticultural industry.
England suffers drastic decrease in bee populations and other pollinators. People are increasingly aware of the importance of multiplying wildflowers.
