Can you imagine jump starting your morning with a fresh cuppa Joe and a guerrilla gardening seed kit?

For Starbucks, designer Freddie Jordan envisioned the SeedPod, a conceptual guerrilla gardening kit that would promote the coffee chain’s sustainable policy. The idea was to give away the SeedPods with free seeds for planting in the local community.

The SeedPods sit in a dock through which a user accesses an interactive map of the local community with which they could update where they had been using their SeedPods as well as suggest areas in need of some garden intervention. Think of it as a guerrilla gardener’s version of Foursquare.

Jordon’s idea reminded me of Seedtabs, the seed packets and displays that brothers Will and Wyatt Roscoe hoped to make available in commonly visited places like cafés. Thoughts?
