Guerrilla Gardening 101


Recently, my brother/housemate, Joel, and I went on a little guerilla gardening mission.  Now we’re rule keeping people, we return our dvds on time, recycle and don’t like getting into trouble.  And we live in an old Illovo flat with a strict, old aged body corporate.  So doing anything outside the rules, even for the good and greening of the building, still felt pretty risky.

We waited for the dead of a Thursday afternoon when everyone was having their old aged naps, dashed outside (with a soup ladle and a side plate as spades) and replaced the terribly sad-looking little shrivel of a root and some cigarette butts with a new, green plant.  Oh the joy, oh the rebellion!  Have you ever guerrilla gardened?  Check out this Guerrilla Gardening website for info, ideas and inspiration.  Happy Greening Anarchy!
