Guerilla Gardening

March 25th, 2009

In a world in which it is so easy to feel disempowered, here is an activity to inspire anyone concerned with the environment: Guerilla Gardening in which you take the law into your own hands to create beauty! In the first 2 min clip Richard Reynolds, author of ‘Guerilla Gardening’, explains the concept. In the second he  shows you how to make ‘seed bombs’ for areas hard to reach, and in the third clip you see him with his granny who has extended the concept to become a Guerilla litter-picker as well as a Guerilla Gardener. Together they sneak out at night to improve an unsightly area in her neighbourhood.

A Poem for the Spring

March 25th, 2009

The same stream of life that runs through the world
runs through my veins night and day in rhythmic measure.
It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust
of the earth into numberless waves of flowers.

Rabindranath Tagore
