INFOGRAPHIC: Guerrilla Gardening Guide

by , 07/03/14

By now, it’s more than likely that you’re familiar with the term “guerrilla gardening”... but if you aren’t, it’s a great subject to look into. All over the world, people are planting everything from wildflowers to veggies in public spaces; sometimes as an act of civil disobedience, but more often as a way to beautify a city. In some places that are rife with homelessness and poverty, edible plants are chosen so that any hungry passersby can reach out and grab a handful of healthy edibles. Seed “bombs” create oases of indigenous wildflowers that nourish dwindling pollinator species, creating oceans of colorful life in what would otherwise be grey, drab, unused lots. If you have any interest in joining the Guerrilla Gardening movement, this handy guide can give you some great tips on how to start.
