Title:
Green Hearts

Author:

Description:
The Green Hearts main focus is to bring more attention to our environment, effect positively the ecosystems, promote sustainability and support collective well being. For all of this people need to get closer to nature. Considering our alienated urban lifestyle, it’s easy to lose our healthy connections with it. This is why urban community horticulture became a much more valuable experience - it’s a pure joy to rediscover our connection with nature and ourselves in the urban environment. The Green Hearts seed bombs inspire conversations and positive change. Seed bombs are useful tools for drawing attention to our environment, education and improve wildlife habitat in environmentally depleted areas. The seed bombs are developed for restoring the human-plant relationship and knowledge on sustainable well-being, and to bring back knowledge about different plants for reconnecting people with nature and catalyzing a faster systematic change towards understanding and respecting our environment and ecosystem. Saving the genetic diversity of seeds is really important for adaptation to the changing climate and serves the survival of various species, including us. The seeds are made into seed bombs which are not only great guerrilla gardening tools, but also effective in seed conservation. The Green Hearts project also focuses on bringing a new experience in health care and to lead people towards finding visible connections between the human body and home grown plants with medicinal properties. The seed bombs' form represents the medicinal benefits of different herbs connected to different parts of the human body, based on recent scientific researches and traditional knowledge for empowering people to grow their own plants for health benefits. This way bringing back a new combination of an ancient tool and knowledge for a faster systematic change towards sustainable human health. Green Hearts hosts seed bomb workshops, where participants can learn about ecology, circular economy, materials reuse, development of healthy habits, implement small changes in their daily lives and many other experiences to improve their impact on the environment, community and personal well-being. In the near future a forest bathing tour is planned as well while also spreading online information to encourage people to grow their own plants, live more healthy and environmentally friendly, because we are all part of nature and we need it for our physical and mental health.
