Guerrilla gardening is a form of nonviolent direct action. The gardens are planted on an abandoned piece of land which they do not own to grow crops or plants. Guerrilla gardeners wish to reclaim land from neglect or misuse and assign a new purpose to it.

important: Always try to use native seeds! Not native species can be invasive and harmful to the surrounding eco-system. (from the Toronto guerrilla gardening group)

Lenny’s nature boats are so gorgeous … He calls them pooh sticks – he beach combs for bits of wood, feather or anything else that appeals and has a loose set of rules for each construction eg. he might only build the boat out of stuff that is within reach when sitting down, or he might restrict the use of tools (usually a penknife).
