Throughout the development of self-initiated projects like Greenaid, we have often found ourselves grappling with questions that extend far beyond the boundaries of our creative practice. By helping to promote and empower the unsanctioned planting of native seeds in underutilized urban landscapes, one of the most frequent questions we were asked concerned the particular composition of our seedbombs. What species did we include? Where and how did we source our seeds? How did we ensure that whatever was being planted was appropriate? The more earnestly we tried to answer these questions for ourselves and others, the more we realized that we’d wandered into a much bigger, and at times heated debate about the very nature of nature itself. And it’s kept us thinking ever since.
