I love this idea of seedbombs, which I found on the Heavy Petal blog, following a link from Make magazine. I'd never heard the term guerrilla gardening before, but it cracks me up. What a brilliant idea. Apparently it's this whole counter cultural guerrilla gardening movement, which has been going on since the early 70's (or even earlier, no doubt).

My own experiment with a non-radical but decidedly organic vegetable garden in my back yard has really solidified my interest in growing some food and putting land to use. I'm not growing a lot of food, and am not likely to charge off and reclaim an unused piece of urban terrain ('cause there aren't any of those nearby), but maybe when we're in DC, I'll look for an opportunity...
