Seed Garbage

3 years, 3 months ago

Why don’t we put plant seeds in garbage? aren’t plants good? Can’t they grow in human waste? or is it too "toxic" and stuff to even live.

Still doesn’t it seem like an interesting system? as long as everyone can put anything and you’re told not to eat the plants fruit, not because you don’t have permission from a talking snake (snake/god no difference) but because the fruits contain toxic chemicals from like plastic.

My question is, are there any special plants out there that can eat garbage? What about pine or cedar trees?

Sometimes when they fill up landfills they cover them in dirt and make a park.

Interesting. Here is a somewhat relevant news article on using plants to apparently adsorb radiation in Japan…

A plant would grow, given time and sunlight, but unfortunately they get buried by yet more garbage, and then covered by PLASTIC to keep the stench of biblical proportions from wafting out. In a few million years, Earth’s geology, where once there was coal, shale, schist, and lime as the sedimentary bedrock, there will be fossilized garbage with little to no practical use or beauty…

Wouldn’t it be interesting if we learned that all the natural resources we use today was garbage from civilizations from the past?

@Giraffe Thanks for the article :)

@Max Can you easily bury a Pine Tree in garbage? If they were tall enough. It sounds great but i’m worried that any plant will get diseases and die and then spread. I guess we’ll find out from Japan won’t we :)

@Alex isn’t it? :P even the water we drink, is the same water the dinosaurs drank.

I meant more like, maybe in a few 1000 years people are going to assume plastic is a natural resource.

but it is. Our whole environment is natural, only it can only go so far until it is unhealthy. Burning the earths carbon pockets is unhealthy, but it is a natural thing and we use it to make computers, but about plastic… I wonder if there is a way to actually make plastic better… what would happen to an animal if it ate the plant that was growing in the garbage dump?

i think it depends on the sort of garbage. I highly doubt any plant could really digest metal, plastic, styrofoam, or most synthetic materials.

^^^ THIS!!!

Oyster mushrooms and other mushroom species are awesome at “eating” and breaking down toxins in our environment like garbage and chemicals and oil spills.

Its called mycoremediation and it could have (IMO should have) been used to clean up the bp oil spill in the gulf and so many other sources of chemical contamination worldwide.

Nature has its own way of dealing with harmful and toxic substances. We have a lot to learn from nature on this subject. I am all for planting seeds in garbage piles! Many seeds won’t germinate/grow in these environments, but the ones that can adapt and evolve to thrive in these situations are pretty much the only way we can restore the planet from all the damage and pollution that humans have created.
