Acquired via BookCrossing 03 July 2009 – in my NSS parcel at Unconvention

Another excellent read, this time about the practice of gardening unloved and unclaimed bits of land, planters, verges etc in a covert and mischevious way. A bit like BookCrossing, proponents of the scheme are registered on a website ( http://www.guerrillagardening.org ) have get-togethers and work to improve their communities. The book is loosely based around guerrilla principles from Mao, Guevara etc, which is quite interesting and funny and gives it something to hang on. I loved the stories of the individual gardeners and gardens and am seriously considering taking a pocketful of sunflower seeds for when I go out on my long Sunday runs…

I will be sharing this one on a bookring so watch out for the announcement.
