Guerrilla Gardening is a movement which seeks to take unused / ugly plots of neglected land and grow plants and vegetables. It is a loose movement with a variety of projects.
Guerrilla Gardening may begin as an illicit activity of just planting in a certain area. In a way the thrill of guerrilla gardening is a combination of the illicit activity and the action of improving the local environment. It could be viewed as a beautiful form of vandalism. A kind of reverse graffiti.
If you look around your city / town, there is a bound to be a neglected area full of weeds / unnecessary concrete e.t.c.
There are many different things that can be done as part of Guerrila Gardening
- Planting bulbs / plants in an area devoid of colour
- Protecting weeds grown in a variety of places.
- Clearing up litter
- Taking up unnecessary concrete and planting in it.
- watering / feeding half a bed of plants to give a different level of growth
