Guerrilla Gardening

May 19, 2010

I love this idea! It's basically finding an abandoned space and planting seeds to start the change. London's Green Corners and Pimp Your Pavement on facebook have some great ideas and guerrillagardening.org is a very cool site. The Conservation Foundation in London supports the London's Green Corners awards and they have some very beautiful spots featured on the site.

What a great idea to start greening up your neighborhood with edible plants too! Pick an ugly little corner that's been neglected, invest in a pack of seeds or two, and next thing you know you might have a beautiful little corner that is also edible for the community :) Love it, love it, love it! Very little investment and a great return!

Has anyone had any luck with this before? I just think it's such a fun, free-spirited sort of idea. Might work, might not but I'm thinking it would be worth a try.
