Guerrilla Gardening

I picked this book up the other day... the author, David Tracy, says,
I decided to write Guerrilla Gardening: A Manualfesto to join the growing campaign to help cities bloom. By combining what I've learned through reporting from urban areas on six continents with what I studied about urban ecology and tried firsthand as a community planner and activist, I hope to make the case that:
1.Cities are too important to leave to people who don't care.
2. Gardening is easy, although sometime tricky when you don't have permission.
3.The planet can be saved by committed gardeners because
4. We are planting the seeds of a brighter future and
5. Our time has come.

Hi D,

Thanks heaps for the book plug. And for doing such a cool site. It's a treat to read about good urban green work from places like yours. Great pics too! Keep on digging.
