Event Description

The first Guerrilla Garden planting has arrived. Everyone is welcome to participate so no matter how involved you have been in the process, up until now, we welcome everyone to come along to help out, observe, encourage, cheer, etc. Just come along and be involved in what ever way you are comfortable.

If you can bring a spade, gloves, watering can, plants, compost and hi-vis vests (if you have them, if you don't have any please make a comment in "comments" section so people can bring extras for you so you can participate) so we can have as many hands working as possible!

The aim is to have the garden planted, watered and completed in 30mins, therefore arriving on time is essential so we can get into it before unwanted attention/company arrives. We will meet at 5.30pm and start the garden at 5.45pm on the dot.

Let's transform unused community space for the betterment of the community and the word, one Guerrilla Garden at a time!

We actually make sure the locals would like something like this before we choose our location. We then get willing locals involved in the planning, site & plant choice etc. They also commit to be the caretakers and let us know if/when there is a bumper crop to share, or if they need a hand with maintenance. I am actually trying to work our a relationship with council that will make it easier for us to build these gardens in unused public space, so hopefully it will minimise/eliminate the legal implications (if any).

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
