Guerrilla Gardening

Guerrillagardening.org is leading a movement in making use of neglected land for growing corn, lettuce, flowers, and basically any type of plant. The word has been spread very well about this project; many people in the U.S. and Europe have invested time into it. There are different ways to contribute, such as donating money and equipment, or finding unused soil and planning a gardening day. For people participating, the website allows you to post pictures and information on your projects, this allows more publicity for the project overall. Another way the site puts itself out there is through social networking sites such as, Facebook, and Twitter. The press has also spread word of Guerilla Gardening, which caused controversy and support for the risky project.
