Why shoot the breeze about it when you can be about it? -Nas
Guerilla gardening is defined as "the cultivation of someone else's land without permission". In practice, it is an act that traces back to the 1970s wherein Green Guerillas cultivated abandoned lots in the Lower East Side of New York. The current figurehead of the movement is Richard Reynolds, who has been getting some press lately because of his cultivation campaign and the recent publication of his book, On Guerilla Gardening. You can now join in on the movement by spreading DIY seed bombs. A how-to video can be viewed here.
Be a rebel by making your city and neighborhood more beautiful. Perfect for all of those that still secretly like wheatpasting, but missed out on the ground floor of it being hip and edgy.
