Seeds of hope / Anti desertification

Seeds of hope

Two of main problems of desert greening are man power and water source. We design seed hopper to solve the problems. Seed hopper has a cone-shaped design which can be stabbed into the ground like a spear. Seed hopper has two parts. The lower part is seed storage which contain seeds, soil, and fertilizer. The upper part is umbrella sharped water-harvest device which can collect scarce rain drops and harvest condensed water using special fabric. Seed hopper is made of recycle-paper that can be degraded naturally.
