The term "guerrilla" may bring to mind a small band of armed soldiers, moving in the dead of night on a stealth mission. In the case of guerrilla gardening, the soldiers are planters, the weapons are shovels, and the mission is to transform an abandoned lot into a thing of beauty. Once an environmentalist's nonviolent direct action for inner-city renewal, this approach to urban beautification is spreading to all types of people in cities around the world.
These modern-day Johnny Appleseeds perform random acts of gardening, often without the property owner's prior knowledge or permission.

Dig in some soil, plant a few seeds, or mend a sagging fence ... one good deed inspiring another, with win-win results all around.
Guerrilla Gardening outlines the power-to-the-people campaign for greening our cities. Tips for effective involvement cover:
Social activists, city dwellers and longtime gardeners will delight in this fast-paced and funny call to arms.
