Guerilla Gardening

23 Apr

I did a post about Guerilla Knitting — a trend inspired by Guerilla Gardening — and then I realized that I never did a post about Guerilla Gardening.  So, here we go!  If you’re wondering what it is — it’s a movement (primarily in cities) across the globe to plant beneficial vegetation

in forgotten, and/or neglected spaces. You can frequently find guerilla gardens in abandoned lots and derelict public spaces.  I was reading up on it online and read that it was led by “radical environmentalists” — but I happen to know a number of elderly women here in Ireland who are involved in a group that go around dropping “seed bombs” on the side of the motorway and I wouldn’t call them radical or environmentalists — they’re just having fun and creating something beautiful to look at.
