Guerilla Gardeners

Here’s an interesting idea for a summer project. The guerilla gardening movement identifies uncared for public land in London and plants flowers in it. Its about who has a claim on council owned land, and raises issues of squatting, direct action, non-conforming forms of engagement with the public realm, and the like. What they do is really a form of Bansky project, isn’t it, except with flowers, not paint.
