Gardening with the Bomb

We've all heard of Guerilla "everything" basically. Have you ever heard of Guerilla Gardeners?  I just read a short newsletter from Jerry Baker where he commented on the "do good" in all of us, but this in particular was about some who are bent on prettying up the ugly.

It seems some Guerilla Gardeners are bombing the planet. At least in and around their town. The idea is, vacant lot and free way eyesores. As these Guerilla Gardeners travel by foot or bicycle they drop, lob or toss green grenades, or seed bombs, made of compressed compost, fertilizer and seeds onto the barren plots of land.  Eventually, they sprout all manner of flower and fauna to reclaim for Mother Nature what pollution or disuse, or misuse has created. What a great idea, don't you think?
