First time guerrilla farming today. I live near Woodinville, so the edge of suburbia, and there are several houses very close to my house that have been abandoned since the mortage crisis. Maybe I wasn't in the spirit of guerrilla farming, I was just looking for more land to garden because my backyard is mostly trees and shaded lawn, but that house had beautiful soil...it obviously used to be well kept with flowers. I planted what I usually plant at my place: potatoes, sunflowers, carrots, beets, beans, and squash.

I'm joining sustainable capitol hill, apparently they've mapped out the neightborhood's need for trees and have even got the city involved - YEAH!

After we moved into our house in the fall of 2006 I applied for the free trees mayor Nichols offered to people who are willing to plant and tend to them in parking strips. You need to come up with five parties in one street to be eligible and at least two people have to take a tree planting and care workshop. Organizing a tree planting weekend helped me get to know people in our new street.
Ironically our next door neighbors cut down 15-20 trees among which an ±50 year old ornamental Japanese tree on the day that we were planting our young trees.
Good thing the tree fund exists to make up for such mishaps.

@IvyAkers Hi Ivy, thanks for inviting me to the guerrilla group. That's great that you're starting a parking strip garden (I take it that's what you mean by sidewalk garden). Here's an article on the phenomenon parking_strip_gardens.pdf When we first arrived in Seattle, we lived in the Queen Anne neighborhood. It was a thrill to see how well some people used the strip between sidewalk and curb. Vegetable gardens in the city, yeah! What a concept I thought. In Amsterdam (where I'm from) people plant all kinds of everything in whatever crack in the sidewalk that's available, sometimes pulling out a tile. There's no such thing as room or dirt to grow vegies.

Sorry. That was not clear when I signed up. I hope there's a way to get off the list.

Awesome! I really meant this to be Seattle specific... :) On that note, I just learned that in Seattle it is now LEGAL to plant in ANY SIDEWALK PLOT so long as you notify the Department of Planning and Development. Currently in the process of doing so, I'll give info on how to proceed. :)
