Guerrilla Gardeners

I heard a great new term: Guerrilla Gardeners. CNN did a story about it. Guerrilla gardeners green their city on secret moonlit missions.

Guerrilla Gardeners refers to people who plant seeds,shrubs, and flowers on land that doesn't belong to them. The result? Plants that beautify or yield crops in otherwise neglected or vacant spaces. It is covert beautification of neighborhoods and cities.

Green Guerrillas was one of the first guerrilla groups founded by artist Liz Christy in 1973 in New York.
