A cute invention! This may just win a “cute-see” award soon. The idea is described below. While this may well be a “noble” process, for city-planners/engineers this may be a nightmare. If this does spread flower power in the city, all the randomness would soon be a mess. But hey, I like the idea… Perhaps this is much suited for the country instead? I just think that cities are much better off with “pocket gardens” or “rooftop greens”.
Seeds are co-mingled with a bubble mixture and upon pedaling to your destination , you release the floating seeds which land in cracks and crevices throughout the city streets. Over time, the seeds grow into flowers and plants to create a green “fringe” to our sidewalks and streets.
Using natural ingredients; vegetable based soap and seeds, combine together to make a dissolving “nugget”. The resulting mixture resides in a reservoir inside Blooms aluminum housing. The housing is attached to the lower frame near the rear tire, similar to a exhaust pipe. Upon pedalling, air enters the front of Bloom and spins a pinwheel inside which picks up a small drop of the seed/bubble mixture and blows a bubble carrying a seed out the back as “exhaust”.
Our inspiration comes from the tale of Johnny Appleseed, where he would spread seeds everywhere he went planting apple trees for future generations.
