As I mentioned last week, a guerilla gardening group recently formed in Vancouver. We met last weekend, and I’ve been thinking about how to introduce the group to Heavy Petal readers. You see, there are just so many cool people involved! It’s inspiring and exciting.
First, there’s our founder and fearless leader, Oren, a landscape architect with a focus on urban ecological design.
There’s Al, who some of you might know from his blog Urban Wilderness but who is now blogging from Al’s Bokashi Blog about Bokashi composting (Al, I must find out more about this!).
There’s Ward, the “boy” behind cityfarmboy.com, a company promoting urban farming and related products and services.
And then there’s David, who wrote a book called Guerilla Gardening, A Manifesto, coming out this April. He also operates EcoUrbanist and is Executive Director of Tree City Canada, a non-profit ecological engagement group.
So many fun, aware, and engaged people! I can’t wait to get up to some mischief with them. Join us!

This sounds amazing. But just hearing about Oren makes me want to weep. I am in such desperate need of a landscaper. I swear, I am losing sleep over this.
The fun is just beginning Andrea. I’m ‘donating’ one of existing GG sites to the group. We’ll be making seed balls for it in mid-March.
Great to hear things are taking off over there. How is seed bombing around The Ghetto House looking these days? Keep me posted about the progress, or put a message on the Canadian bit of the Community Board at http://www.guerrillagardening.org!
All the best

I just came across this while checking out ‘cityfarmboy’ on the web; I’m excited to read up on how your plan came to fruition.
