Guerrilla Gardening

without comments


We all know what guerrilla marketing is by now.  Another clandestine op that’s not quite as well known yet is guerrilla gardening—unofficially greening up barren corners of whatever concrete metropolis you live in.

Now, a company called Common Studio has made it easier to throw plant grenades (little balls of clay, seeds and earthworm stuff) by creating Greenaid, combining vending machines and public activism. All you do is pop a quarter into a “candy” machine, get a ball, clandestinely plant it where you will and wait for it to turn an empty lot into an urban oasis.  That’s seriously underground.
