Guerilla Gardening

Botanic gardens are more often than not located in urban areas and inhabited by those who love plants and want them to prosper and flourish. But have you ever thought on your commute home, of spreading the greenery from beyond the walls of the botanic garden and into the cracks in the pavement? Then you could be a guerilla gardener.

Described by self-proclaimed guerilla gardener 'Richard' as "acts of illicit cultivation", people are taking life into their own hands and planting 'seed-bombs', getting out in the dead of night to instal trees and green up wasteland in derelict urban areas. It's a form of anti-vandalism that seeks to create nourishment where neglect has become the accepted norm.
