Have you heard about this? This is going on in many places around the world but the link I provide is for a guy who has been doing it in London since 2004. Essentially guerilla gardening involves gardening on land that is not yours.
His love of illicit gardening stems from fighting a war against neglected public spaces. Now that’s a war I can get behind. So he makes the areas around him beautiful, who wouldn’t want that? Plus with so many Londoners not having their own garden this is a way to engage in a pleasurable activity and benefit the wider community. Issues abound of course with gardening on land that is not your own but I think it’s pretty cool.
Where I currently live we do not have a garden. There are many green spaces around but to bring a bit of it indoors we have an eclectic collection of plants crowding the ledge in our living room. My boyfriend’s mother loves gardening and grows a lot of stuff and some eventually makes its way from Kent (Faversham) to our flat. I would definitely try out guerilla gardening but I already have a huge list of things I want to do this summer. Tattoo done and I’m already thinking of the next, but that can wait a while. Now I’m thinking about the best way to get my guitar which is currently in my old bedroom in Canada to my flat in London.
