Guerrilla Gardening

This sounds like fun...but here in the gun-happy, territorial U.S. (particularly Texas), it could get you shot. Or, at least, fined.

I've got to agree with you Tamara. When I first saw this article I was equally inspired and started hunting around for areas within my own community to wage war on.

I've found some - I just need to do something about them now.

What a neat idea!

I'm tempted to attack a little plot of land by our local library...seriously tempted...

Go for it, and then let me know how you're getting on. I'm compiling 100 acts of guerrilla gardening at www.guerrillagardening.org, and every little helps. I even did some gardening with some Texans last week who were visiting London.

Good to see another guerrilla gardening outpost. I actually used "Can You Dig It" as the subtitle for my book, until the publisher suggested a revision.

If anyone's interested, here's a link:
