We’ve all heard of committing random acts of kindness (what a glorious thing), but what about random acts of gardening?, based in London, provides plenty of inspiration, as well as tips and a community forum on transforming neglected public spaces into flourishing gardens, renegade-style, after dark. Their motto is “Let’s fight the filth with forks and flowers.” Be sure to check out founder Richard Reynolds’ videos on the Guerrilla Gardening YouTube channel, featuring a great little interview with Richards’ guerrilla gardening 93-year-old grandmother. Inspirational! (Thanks, Laura!)

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
