On Guerrilla Gardening

Illicit gardening: who knew that playing in the dirt could be so, well, provocative? London-based Richard Reynolds is the unofficial spokesperson for a worldwide movement dedicated to cultivating plants in public places without permission!

From pimping pavement to throwing seed bombs, Reynolds’ book On Guerrilla Gardening: A Handbook for Gardening Without Boundaries, explains tactics and provides inspiration for gardeners seeking to beautify their urban communities and coincidentally burst apathy about public spaces, at any risk.

He’ll talk about his work, Road Trips Gardeners, in a presentation at 7 p.m. February 10, 2011, in the Tobias Theater at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, 4000 Michigan Road, Indianapolis. Admission is $8.

In his talk, Reynolds will survey the breadth of community-based gardening from artists and activists to foodies and florists who are using horticulture to combat litter and pollution everywhere from Botswana to Canada. Of course, a book signing follows his remarks.
