Guerilla Gardening

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.

  1. How wonderful! Simple but brilliant idea – I really believe that having a beautiful environment makes a massive positive impact on how we feel about ourselves, and therefore our world and how we choose to treat it. I want to adopt Richard Reynolds’ granny as my own! She’s so lovely!

  2. This is great. I pick up cans and litter as I walk down my road and when our druid seedgroup goes out into London woodlands we alwys try to take black plastic bags to pick up litter. Hope I’m still doing it when I’m 93
