Guerrilla gardening at Urbis

To be honest, it’s not very often that I give much consideration to writing about gardening – grass is for sitting or running around on, and flowers just make me sneeze – but this one’s a little different:

A nightime, participative, artist-led expedition where a decrepit urban area is subversively rejuvenated through community gardening. In association with the National Wildflower Centre, this event is led by artist Jason Minsky and will transform the way in which participants think about who owns public space.

Guerrrilla gardening begins at 6pm next Thursday, 3 May, in Urbis. It’s then open daily, Monday to Sunday, 10am until 6pm.

I haven’t got a clue what it’s about, but you can read the Wiki or visit sites like GuerrilaGardening.org and Primal Seeds for more information.
