From NYT: Urban Gardening: An Appleseed With Attitude

Reading and watching this now:

From NYT Article on Ron Finely: Last winter at TED, the annual ideas confab in Long Beach, his rousing 10-minute talk about guerrilla gardening in low-income neighborhoods was the hug-your-neighbor presentation of the week, and Mr. Finley was suddenly the man to meet. 

“South Central Los Angeles [is the] home of the drive-thru and the drive-by. Funny thing is, the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys.” ~ Ron Finley

A Call to Art

Fellow guerrillas we need lots and lots of art to promote our 

Seedling Swap, Saturday May 18th 2-5pm. Tomorrow I will confirm the venue. 

Meanwhile please recruit your good selves, partners, friends, offspring and others artistically inclined to be ready to make a myriad of posters to spread the word around town. 

We are looking for:
posters with details of the swap - to be confirmed tomorrow 
signs to identify the seedlings by vegetable and variety

anything from this

run, don't walk to the Guerrilla Gardening Seedling Swap etc.


to this

 or wherever else your artistic inclination takes you

As soon as we have details, everyone please get busy postering and telling people, tell your friends, tell your neighbors, tell your cat, tell your cat to tell your neighbor's cat.

Vive la veggie révolution, mes petit choux!
