Guerilla gardening


Graffiti doesn’t have to be destructive or polluting, I’m seeing a new trend in eco-graffiti or “guerilla gardening” that’s gaining traction. Here’re a few examples:

    Not exactly a new concept, remember the old ‘spell out an obscene message on the lawn with fertilizer’ trick? From what I’ve heard the message can still be read years later.

    A nice of getting your message across the eco-friendly way LOL! I love the figure of the woman with the eagle. Great artwork.

  4. Kitchen Design says:

    Interesting. I’m not sure if you can call it guerrilla gardening but I did was plant vegetables in a vacant land in front of my house without asking for permission. I just felt that the space was wasted and vegetables can be grown into it and my family can enjoy the harvest.
