Guerilla Gardening: A Basic Guide

by photohippie

Guerilla Gardening is a type of nonviolent statement to bring about change in your community. It is just more accurately described by Wikipedia…

“Guerrilla gardening is political gardening, a form of nonviolent direct action, primarily practiced by environmentalists. It is related to land rights, land reform, and permaculture. Activists take over (“squat”) an abandoned piece of land which they do not own to grow crops or plants. Guerrilla gardeners believe in re-considering land ownership in order to reclaim land from perceived neglect or misuse and assign a new purpose to it.”

This is a guide to how I planted my first guerilla tree and everything I used in order to get it to this new location.
