Guerrilla park in Austin

One day, a man named Joe Zamecki got tired of seeing trash stored in the open space behind the fence across from his North Austin apartment complex. This video is the story of the ongoing conversion.

A post on's community board for Austin tells that the project now involves a vegetable garden. Nice!

I think you can ask the city to help mow, at least 4x's a year! Nice work, we need more involved folks. Thank you!

Hi Lindsay- Thanks for visiting my blog and checking out Gina's garden in Salt Lake City. Even old gardeners are still experimenting. Of course I will help in any way I can. Maybe, as I grow my vegs from seed, I can let you have some for the Spring. keep up the good work and think natives.

You might like to take a look at my recent post on Square Foot Gardening. I have a feeling it might be appropriate if you plan some vegetable gardening.
