40 Guerrilla Gardening Innovations

From Seed Bombs to Plantable Produce Packaging

— June 13, 2011 — Eco
As more metropolitan areas grow into sprawling concrete jungles, environmental activists have been fighting back with guerrilla gardening initiatives. These innovations aim to infuse vegetables, plants and other greenery into urban landscapes surreptitiously.

These guerrilla gardening innovations range widely in scope, but all of them are enormously creative. They include seed bombs that can be dropped or thrown, plantable packaging and greeting cards that turn litter into landscapes, and informal art installations that turn abandoned furniture or concrete cracks into planters.

The rise of environmentalism has only fueled guerrilla gardening; prospective activists are improving their cities for aesthetic and environmental purposes. The innovations above are sure to inspire even more clever ways to green our cities and other densely populated areas.
