Week 22_Inspiring Project

Guerrilla Gardening

Guerrilla Gardening is the act of growing plants, on land that does not belong to you. On places that is illegal to utilize.
I found this project inspiring for the reason that it is a form of activism, it is a way of protest to raise an awareness for the environment. Nowadays, it is rare to see green in the cities, everything is surrounded by concrete. Guerilla gardeners, their “job” is to raise plants, frequently focusing on food crops or plants intended for aesthetic purposes, mostly in abandoned sites, areas that are not being cared for, or private properties.
