Thanks Angela,
Ruth and I have been guerrilla gardeners since 1998 or so. We were just out
this morning, weeding the space we care for, a bit of land owned by the
condominium in which we live. Started out as a a little triangle of land in
a hillside just above the complex. Lost a bit to a parking lot but are
soldiering on. We are also leaf rustlers. When plastic bags of leaves raked
up from local parks are left waiting for trash pick up, we grab them first
for our compost heap. Our most deviant behavior so far? Had to be the year
we snuck up to the big park farther up the hill to rake up three or four
bags of fallen cherry blossoms.
