Guerrilla Gardening in Cincinnati, Pt. 1

(On sunday Benton and Marchman headed north to help some Northern Kentucky University students build a Guerrilla Garden.)

We picked up rock for free on the side of the freeway:

The Northern Kentucky University students had located a good public spot and we discussed which section would get the most direct sunlight

Time to get to work unloading that rock (we ended up getting two pickup loads of rock)

When buidling a public garden you should let your inner creativity interact with the local environment. This will guide your rock selection and the construction of the garden

We place newspaper on the bottom to seal off the grass from the garden. We build above ground gardens so that we do not physically mar the landscape (plus, I think they look better)

This project is the kind that shimmers hope into an seemingly empty space. May this work continue on and inspire sparks--I know it has charged me with a feeling of CHANGE!
