Guerilla gardening: a horticultural revolution

“They practise the art of ‘propaganda gardening’, planting up every available public space in their town, and from their efforts have sprung businesses, social enterprises, school gardens, a permaculture training centre, even ‘vegetable tourism’! Their work has envigorated the town’s economy and made them famous. Communities throughout the world have taken Todmorden’s model and replicated it.”
