Kurzbeschreibung

The term “guerrilla” may bring to mind a small band of armed soldiers, moving in the dead of night on a stealth mission. In the case of guerrilla gardening, the soldiers are planters, the weapons are shovels, and the mission is to transform an abandoned lot into a thing of beauty. Once an environmentalist’s nonviolent direct action for inner-city renewal, this movement is spreading to all types of people in cities around the world.

These modern-day Johnny Appleseeds perform random acts of gardening, often without permission. Typical targets are vacant lots, railway land, underused public squares, and back alleys. The concept is simple, whimsical, and has the cheeky appeal of being a not-quite-legal call to action. Dig in some soil, plant a few seeds, or mend a sagging fence—one good deed inspiring another, with win-win benefits all around.

Guerrilla Gardening outlines the power-to-the-people campaign for greening our cities. Tips for effective involvement include:

• Finding plants and seeds cheap (or free)
• Handling city officials
• Getting the dirt on soil
• Planting to bring back the birds
• Knowing when to ask first

Social activists, city dwellers, and longtime gardeners will delight in this fast-paced and funny call to arms.

David Tracey is a journalist and environmental designer who operates EcoUrbanist in Vancouver. He is executive director of Tree City Canada, a nonprofit ecological engagement group.

Synopsis

The term "guerrilla" may bring to mind a small band of armed soldiers, moving in the dead of night on a stealth mission. In the case of guerrilla gardening, the soldiers are planters, the weapons are shovels, and the mission is to transform an abandoned lot into a thing of beauty. Once an environmentalist's non-violent direct action for inner-city renewal, this approach to urban beautification is spreading to all types of people in cities around the world. These modern-day Johnny Appleseeds perform random acts of gardening, often without the property owner's prior knowledge or permission. Typical targets are vacant lots, railway land, underused public squares, and back alleys. The concept is simple, whimsical and has the cheeky appeal of being a not-quite-legal call to action.Dig in some soil, plant a few seeds, or mend a sagging fence - one good deed inspiring another, with win-win results all around. "Guerrilla Gardening" outlines the power-to-the-people campaign for greening our cities.

Tips for effective involvement include: finding plants and seeds cheap (or free); handling city officials; getting the dirt on soil; planting to bring back the birds; knowing when to ask permission and when to seek forgiveness. Social activists, city dwellers and long-time gardeners will delight in this fast-paced and funny call to arms.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good book, but more pictures/illustrations would help 28. Juli 2008
Von C. Barnard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I liked this book as it was a good read on a topic which has the ability to be over written. The book covers the philosophy of guerrilla gardening, has a few pictures, and numerous accounts from other people involved in guerrilla gardening. I feel the accounts are the strong point of this book as it has community garden leaders, public officials, and other peoples views on guerrilla gardening. It really gives you a good basis on the issue of greening our cities. There's also a lot of info on potential grow sites, asking permission, recommended plants, and many other gardening basics.

The weak point of this book is the lack of color photographs and illustrations. I know that guerrilla gardening is pretty straight forward, but inclusion of pictures can really help get the juices flowing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Book already has dirt stains on it... 9. April 2009
Von J. Friedrich - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
and I've just begun. This book is a great start to beautify and improve the landscape around you. Gardeners and activist alike will enjoy the tips and clear format of Guerrilla Gardening. Lots of pictures too!
2.0 von 5 Sternen Poorly-written 30. August 2011
Von Adrienne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is very poorly-written. Each paragraph is a random tangent or non sequitur. It is so bad that it seems as though this book was written by the author in one drug-induced manic episode.

I really do appreciate the content, but a good Editor would have left much of this text on the cutting room floor.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A guide any urban public lending library will find appealing and different. 6. August 2007
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Guerrilla gardeners have a habit of taking vacant lots and public spaces and turning them into gardens, with or without permission - and this provides a basic guide to greening cities with such a strategy. From locating cheap or free plants and seeds and getting soil conditions up to par to planning to bring back birds and knowing when to ask permission versus when to seek forgiveness after the fact, GUERRILLA GARDENING is a guide any urban public lending library will find appealing and different.

3.0 von 5 Sternen ok book on inner city gardening...but enough with the politics already!!! 5. August 2010
Von Michael W. Fitzpatrick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I liked the creative ways the author documents what worked in Canada for making the inner city there nicer by adding plants, planting on private property and even the parts about the guy who spray painted improvements (as in artwork) to the crosswalks up north...I was so turned off about how he kept pointing out about left and right, and Al Gore global warming it made me want to toss the book. if they kept the politics out of it the book would have been so much better...I only picked up the book because I live in an urban area and wanted to see what I needed to have a garden in the back mini-yard....
I gave him three stars cause the info, pics, and ideas were interesting- but again he totally bought in to politics on the left and even if I'm not with either the left or right- I am about sick of politics- the last place I want to read about Mr. monster House/private plane/ climategatioligist, Cap and Trade -con man- payable to the world IMF bank, Al Gore is my pleasure reading. Pe'shaw.

that being said the rest of the book that I could read after that was ok. (and no I don't support Bush or Obama. I am only interested in personal freedoms!)
