Organic culture-jamming

By dead of night, a group of "guerilla gardeners" in the UK are reclaiming urban wastelands, from a "huge shrubbery/urinal behind the bus stops on London Road" to a North London plot "filled with weeds, beer cans, and a pool of vomit," by clandestinely planting bulbs, bushes, and herbs. As it turns out, the London duo aren't pioneers, but part of a growing movement. Check out Pure Genius, Primal Seed, Wikipedia's entry on the topic, and Toronto's Guerilla Gardening site (sponsored by the city's Public Space Committee).
