Guerrilla Guardening Update
Having driven the concept of Guerrilla Gardening with his blog for a while now, Richard Reynolds has created a new handbook on ‘gardening without boundaries’. By researching guerrilla gardeners in thirty different countries, he has compiled advice on what to grow, how to cope with adverse environmental conditions, how to seed bomb effectively and how to use propaganda to win support from the local community. The description over at Amazon reads:
From discretely beautifying corners of Montreal to striving for green communal space in Berlin and sustainable food production in San Francisco, from small gestures of fun in Zurich to bold political statements in Brazil, cultivating land beyond your boundary is a battle many different people are fighting. Unearthed along the way are the movement’s notable historic advances by seventeenth century English radicals, a nineteenth century American entrepreneur and artists in 1970s New York.
