Glos Guerilla Gardening meet-up

The Guerilla Gardener | 15.06.2011 16:49 | Ecology | Free Spaces | Social Struggles

I've been talking to lots of people interested in starting some form of guerilla gardening group in gloucestershire, and I'm sure there are many more of you out there...

So lets get gardening!

This is a chance for activists, gardeners, neo-diggers, allotmentless peasants, permaculture initiates *chuckles* and anyone interested in the gloucestershire eco-village project to meet each other, to network and sow a little beauty into our otherwise dreary world.

If you're interested in doing a little guerilla gardening next Thursday [the 23rd] contact...

Bring whatever you think will be useful - seeds, cuttings, seedlings, seeds bombs, gardening tools, coats, drinks'n'munchies, hi-vis?!- for hiding in plane sight.

Don't worry if you don't have any of these things, there'll be plenty for you to do- come along and get stuck in!

It'll be somewhere near gloucester, maybe even near the town center, or we could do it in the more rural outskirts- still open to suggestions for a location to garden- email me.

I have a couple in mind, but I'm hoping someone will know of the perfect place. We'll all decide on the day, maybe spread our gardening around a little.

I'll be focusing mainly on food plants- but bring anything you'd like to plant!

"..yet my mind was not at rest, because nothing was acted, and thoughts run in me that words and writings were all nothing, and must die, for action is the life of all, and if thou dost not act, thou dost nothing,"
