Guerrilla Gardening: A Manualfesto

Guerrilla Gardening: A Manualfesto

by David Tracey

Sure, anyone with a backyard can grow things in it, but what if you don't own a home or rent a place where you're allowed to grow your own food? Guerrilla gardening is the answer to that question. Parking strips, empty lots, and margins of otherwise under- or badly-utilized soil can be turned into sites of production for food, flowers, and revolution! This book is a big old how-to guide for choosing places, choosing plants, tending your illicit gardens, and what to do if you run into resistance. Also it has interviews with people who have changed their streets and public places for the better with plants!
