It used to be just us po-folks growing mint in vacant lots, but it's really taken off in the UK and, to some extent in the US. There are videos of Brits hauling materials to a site, fixing up a crap-hole so it looks super beautiful, and then disappearing into the night. Even though it's technically vandalism, the cops don't work really hard to find the perpetrators because why would they? Anyway, it seems like 2012 might be my year. What about you?

I'm sure you mean crevice, but i got a good laugh, thanks!

Best Answer

Yeah, I did, but I looked up the spelling because I really can't spell, and there it was: "Crevasse." I know, ice and snow, but then I thought, well, cities, alleys, vacant lots, tall buildings... crevasses. So, I went with that.

No offense taken, even if you had meant to. If I need correcting, go ahead and correct me.

Now there's some SUBurban gardening! Sure beats getting a fishhook in your eye because you were walking in the woods too close to someone's little farm.

Im thinking illegal gardening means growing canabis, I did years ago when I smoked alot but now it's to hard to find a good place and they allways get stolen or the varments eat them before they mature.

Best Answer

Of course, it could mean weed, but the kind I am thinking about is actually either edible crops or stuff that makes a place look much better.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCy76mePNyo This is one of my favorite videos of this activity that a German friend turned me on to. But if you go to quite a number of cities in the USA and I am sure other places, there is mint or sometimes even rows of crops in abandoned lots. Sometimes, if you look behind an Asian restaurant, you will see them quite easily.
