  1. Richard Reynolds Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the On Guerrilla Gardening: The Why, What, and How of Cultivating Neglected Public Space book, this is one of the most wanted Richard Reynolds author readers around the world.

  2. I really dug this book I have been a guerrilla gardener off and on now for several years, mostly planting giant sunflowers To clarify, a guerrilla gardener gardens on neglected public land without permission Discovering this book was like finding the handbook, and network, I always wished I had Richard Reynolds takes it farther than I had previously imagined, enlisting troops to go on large digs roadside embankments, traffic circles, vacant lots, etc in an attempt to beautify the urban landscape [...]

  3. I read this when I was living with my first garden in London, and was totally smitten by the gardening bug This is easy to fall prey to, since the UK has a ferociously avid gardening culture that has no equivalent in the US For example, the Chelsea garden show is covered on TV for three consecutive nights in prime time So now, I find myself slammed down in Slummerville, MA and completely surrounded by pavement, and this book is giving me ideas Total punk rock approach to what has traditionally b [...]

  4. Die praktischen Infos sind spannend und die ber konkrete Projekte auch aber die politischen Ansichten von Reynolds fand ich cringeworthy, in einem Kapitel wurden Zierblumen in Londoner Betontr gen tats chlich verglichen mit Land, auf dem Menschen illegal Essen anbauen, um davon zu leben Joa, vl mal den Begriff guerilla f r Stadtversch nerung fallen lassen, statt so unn tige Verbindungen herzukonstruieren An einer anderen Stelle freut er sich, dass ein Garten Sexarbeiter_innen und Leute die Droge [...]

  5. INSPIRATIONAL always carry seeds with youow the world it s natural lovely photos in this bookanks to my sisterbrother in law for the gift of the book

  6. I love gardening, and I like thinking about things in an unconventional way This books puts the two together Guerilla gardening can be revolutionary, as in some movements outside of the US, or it can be a way to bless one s community anonymously, or somewhere along the wide spectrum in between I didn t finish this book, but I enjoyed skimming through it I believe any community activist would enjoy this, many gardeners would, and anyone just intrigued by the title concept.Bonus points to my publi [...]

  7. This book took me a month to read because half way through I actually started gardening both at my home and on neglected public land I don t think this needs any further review Gardening is important Making a statement that says that food and good health are important than title or profit is essential for the future of this planet and all it s inhabitants.

  8. On Guerrilla Gardening, A Handbook For Gardening Without Boundaries is at it s core a gushing of enthusiasm for a very niche genre of greenthumbedness Even the cover of my edition, full of blossoming flowers against a backdrop of drab gray buildings, suggests a sort of bursting emotion This book looks beautiful on a bookshelf or coffee table btw, I could almost recommend it because of that alone Contrary to what the title implies, this book is by no means a how to for illicit gardening It s an [...]

  9. A very basic introduction to guerrilla gardening So basic, I m not exactly sure what demographic would read and learn by it Written largely from a British perspective, for British spaces plant suggestions are somewhat limited for other climates It has an oddly formal layout, a weird medium for this particular political message I get that it s essentially a handbook this is borne out much better in the latter half of the book than the beginning the first half is history politics the second, hands [...]

  10. Ever heard of guerrilla gardening People all over the world are taking over unused land and planting gardens It is such a fun idea, especially if the land is lying fallow And now there is a manual for people who want to try it On Guerrilla Gardening The small book includes the history of the movement and pictures of people out there doing it.Did you know that Victory Gardens during World War II supplied 42 percent of all fresh food to the country There seems to have been a recent resurgence of i [...]

  11. Schon lange steht dieses Buch in meinem B cherregal, aber bisher war einfach noch nicht der richtige Lesemoment gekommen Nun bin ich durch und habe, ohne jegliche G rntererfahrung mein letzter Basilikumtopf lebt NOCH aber das ist leider ein Einzelfall das drigende Bed rfnis hinaus in die urbanen Landschaften meiner heimatlichen Kleinstadt zu ziehen und s mtliche vernachl ssigten Fl chen mit bunter Pflanzenvielfalt zu begl cken.Dieses Buch bietet eine wundersch ne, liebevoll und anekdotenreiche E [...]

  12. On Guerrilla Gardening is a delightful little book The author mixes history, politics, environmentalism and practical gardening into an enjoyable weekend read.Guerrilla gardening can be a strong political statement about the waste of good land and the potential for abundance even when we re faced with a food crisis, or it can just be something you do for fun My only concern is the waging battle metaphor that sprouts throughout the book I wish even as we guerrilla garden, that we could make our s [...]

  13. I found myself inspired while reading the book to get started with a few projects that, so far, haven t panned out as well as I had hoped But it s a learning process It had some useful information and a good message and intention behind it Unfortunately, the writing style was inelegant and Reynolds seemed to be really grasping for topics to flesh the book out, resulting in a lot of content of tenuous importance or even relevance However it was short and sparse enough to keep it from being too te [...]

  14. This sounds like a really fantastic idea, although I probably ought to get my own garden under control before I start toying around in random places I do, however, find myself picking out weedy, dead looking spots that could use some sprucing up every time I m out and about This is a really comprehensive how to guide and it s filled with stories and bits of dry humor, so it s not like reading an instruction manual at all.

  15. The guy who wrote this book is hilariously candid I wonder if he took his notes from a blog and just made a book out of it He has funny side notes, such as not making jokes about gorillas and guerillas He also has a lot of helpful information about plants, about organizing yourself to become a guerilla gardener, and about re envisioning space around us There s an entire web site dedicated to stories of guerilla gardening.

  16. This is a pretty quick read, but it s got some great information about Guerrilla Gardening The author is the founder of the website GuerrillaGardening and gives an overview of the history of guerrilla gardening, how tos, etc It s a pretty good read and has inspired me to think about places in the Boston area that I can beautify with plants.

  17. I enjoyed it a lot It provides a new perspective to and appreciation for gardening by introducing it as an activity that s part of a community or culture rather than an independent project in your back yard which is kick ass too though This book has definitely enriched my life by presenting me with a foreign pleasure I now enjoy.

  18. Really excited about this concept, especially in how it relates to other interventionist subversive educational strategies my own nascent terminology, I m sure there is a better one out there like culture jamming, graffiti and certain performative conceptual art work Really excited to read this and perhaps start some guerrilla gardening myself around the town

  19. This was a lot of fun surprisingly practical Lots of great photos There is plenty of advice about every aspect and complication of gardening without permission Since I have already begun a bit of unauthorized planting it s cool to feel like part of something bigger I especially liked the historical bits thanks for the gift Taylor

  20. An odd little book.Guerrilla gardeners are people who garden, without permission, on property they do not own.Includes anecdotes from many cities, but Milwaukee is not one of them.It is not surprising to learn that some elected officials would rather have an ugly, neglected space than a space beautified by someone who is not under their thumb.

  21. I enjoyed this book It was sort of a revolutionary s approach to gardening, about taking over public spaces, changing the world, and well, making things pretty I don t know that I ll become a guerrilla gardener, as I have a short enough attention span with the garden in my own back yard, but it was a fun read.

  22. great subject a good collection of information, hints anecdotes but strangely not compelling, probably due to writing style if you re already sympathetic interested possibly semi guerrilla already, the frameworks of reasons for g gardening what one might garden are helpful

  23. This book was interesting I enjoyed it Not anything I would need to own Pretty basic information on the how to, but really informative on how to be a guerilla gardener politely and how to handle others.

  24. An interesting idea, hard for me to grasp as a rural living person, but I could see how city dwellers would be into reclaiming un gardened space and making it their own A bit too heavy handed on do this not that, call it this, not that.

  25. this doesn t feel like a book, its like a website, where they only let the surface stories out if you d like to know a few things about the guerrilla gardening movement, i d be happy to lend my copy, but don t buy it.

  26. I ve just started the book but it explains why I have suddenly seen a bunch of sunflowers around the lamp posts in my neighborhood and other places good for them.

  27. Pretty cover First half much better than the second half Second half should have just read Put some seeds in the ground or something of the sort.Nothing really new, but fun.
