Ever wandered down a bleak, grey street and imagined bright plants springing up around it?
You've come to the right place.
Dream Green is a community that helps people get guerrilla gardening.
Here, you'll find information, inspiration, and resources to help you reclaim neglected corners of your neighbourhood, and transform them from grey to green.
WHAT IS GUERRILLA GARDENING?
Guerrilla gardening is a form of grassroots direct action where people green their neighbourhoods.
Rather than wait for municipal solutions, guerrilla gardeners take matters into their own hands – using plants to reclaim public space for public (and planetary) good.
Guerrilla gardening sees lifeless corners of local streets transformed into bright pockets of food and flowers.
PEOPLE POWER X FLOWER POWER
WHY DOES IT MATTER?
Our green planet is getting greyer. Concrete already outweighs every tree, bush, and shrub on Earth.
The rapid greyification of human habitats is harming both people and planet – worsening air pollution, raising urban temperatures, killing off biodiversity, and creating food deserts.
To reverse this terrifying trend, we're helping communities dream green, and get guerrilla gardening.
HOW DO I GUERRILLA GARDEN?
Guerrilla gardening can mean planting bulbs in a street tree bed, scattering native wildflowers onto a bare road verge, or turning a vacant lot into a community allotment. It can be an agile, anonymous solo mission, or a big group operation.
Which level you're ready for, check out our guides for ideas and 'how to's, or get the handbook for a step-by-step action plan.
To become a guerrilla gardener, you just need to take action! This action could take many forms...
IS GUERRILLA GARDENING ILLEGAL?
No laws specifically prohibit the act of autonomously planting in public places. There are laws that can be used against guerrilla gardeners (including vandalism, trespass, public nuisance, public endangerment, and environmental laws), however it is perfectly possible to carry out guerrilla action in ways that avoid such accusations.
Guerrilla gardening is not inherently illegal.
