Leaving a green thumb isn't a problem for Eileen May. You can call her Western New York's best guerilla gardener.

May is the owner of Love by Bean. She creates 100% eco-friendly seed bombs. They're made out of recycled Buffalo News papers and contain seeds such as flowers, herbs and other greenery.

"Over the past eight years, I've made like 800,000 of these balls," she said.

The seed bombs are meant to be tossed onto a green space.

"It's basically gardening in places that need a little extra love," she said.

The paper decomposes as the seeds sprout.

"We use organic seeds so you're not using any pesticides or polluting the enviornment."

May also makes the seed bombs in different shapes and colors for wedding favors. Her favorite part about her craft is sharing the finished piece for all to grow and love.
