Being one that loves the beauty of any garden, I thought it was such an intriguing title that I had to check it out (click the title)... Turns out it is taking over a public or private spot in (usually) an urban area and planting a garden there! Along sidewalks, empty lots, medians, on ramps to the freeway...Food, foliage, or flowers, whatever will grow there.
At first I was just a bit appalled at the thought of someone coming onto "MY" property. But then I thought, if it's not being used and someone can make it beautiful and/or productive, why not? Of course, I live out in the country, so I personally have not experienced this. And yet, I can see the potential of sharing something positive in an area that may have negative vibes all around it.
So, if you see on the news one day, a happy little woman tending a garden in the traffic island of some city street...think of me and SMILE!
