London Non-Profit Launches Campaign To Plant Millions Of Wildflowers

By Aimee Lutkin

When you think of London, you likely picture a bustling urban landscape filled with people, buildings, cars, and perhaps the occasional green space sprinkled in. But non-profit Park City is working to get London declared a national park, advocating for the 8.3 million trees and 14,000 species of wildlife that call it home, Treehugger reports. Their new campaign is trying to expand the greenery; they want to plant nine million wildflowers, or one for every London resident.

They're currently running a fundraising campaign for #WildflowersForLondoners, and partnering with a company called Seedballs. Making seed balls, or "seed bombs," is a famous DIY tradition for spreading pollinating flowers in urban areas. For example, in an abandoned lot or in a backyard. Seedballs sells their own mix of clay, seeds, and chili pepper to deter pests, making it easier than ever to spread flowers on vacant property. Or your own property, if you have some.
