Tap into The Guerilla Gardening TikTok Trend with Branded Seed Bombs

What’s the next trend for promotional products? This is the golden-egg question for distributors and business owners. Which is why we’re talking about a growing community on TikTok and beyond that your brand or client may want to connect with: guerilla gardeners.

These planting enthusiasts toss seed bombs (wads of paper or fertilizer with easy-to-grow seeds inside) into empty lots and unused green spaces to support pollinators. If you haven’t heard of guerilla gardening yet, learn about the history in our post The Spirit of Guerrilla Gardening & Seed Bombs.

Tie-in your brand with an engaging activity

Looking for the facts to back up why seed bombs might be the perfect promotional giveaway solution for your brand or client? These might surprise you:

  • Teens and tweens aren’t the only ones on TikTok — there are 386.6 million TikTok users aged 18 to 24.
  • Guerrilla gardeners get media attention. For example, Monica Grove in interview with CBC (watch the video here) or Jenn Hall (read her interview with CBC)

Show off your brand personality and values

When guerilla gardeners plant seed bombs, they may feel uplifted and inspired to make a positive difference. Here’s what some of them are saying:

“It feels empowering. We’re looking to make something that can be useful for the community.”

– Jenn Hall, CBC

“I thought to myself, the world’s on fire, how can I make a difference? Well, I can increase biodiversity locally to support pollinators — namely bees.”

– Shalaco,
