He's also keen to see what's going on here - do you know of any current Auckland guerrilla gardening initiatives he could visit next week?

The more I learn about edible plants and New Zealands native foods I find myself recognising these plants scattered everywhere!!!! Am now learnign as much as possible about what is already available instead of purposefully planting in these habitats.
This interest comes under the umbrella 'food forests' yet I feel it bares relevence with guerilla planting
Much joy, enthusiam and power to you on your journey.

I have seen coloured silverbeet grown by some councils in the middle of busy road but often wondered about the fumes and how edible the plants would be. I like the idea of creating gardening commons where everyone can grow enough food to feed urban populations. I have noticed, from feeding our chickens, that the types of grains and seeds you feed to birds tend to grow really well.

Check out for a story about Guerrilla Gardening (propaganda planting), Incredible Edible and the changes over 18 months in Todmorden, England.
Great to see a positive story. Similar to another in South Yarra, Melbourne with Community gardens where the Council had to back down on their plans to remove gardens of a similar type and now support them.

I found some Tamarind Trees today dripping in ripe pods. Grabbed a few handfuls of the pods, ate the flesh and thumbed the seeds into the gardens at a park about 2km away. We'll see what happens

Laughs ignorance indeed!
Sorry I have not posted any info here yet, but yes guerrilla planting edible plants council land.
I am soon to invite guerrilla activist here so NZ towns/cities have a more eco biodiverse landscape. To bring awareness of the importance of locally grown food and how we can utilise space for food production.
Carry on the good work. A tip would be to get involved in council meetings and decision making discussions. Your voices can action can bring changes!

Hi is guerilla planting when you plant on median strips and other public land, I am thinking about putting a few mesclun lettuces in amongst the roses down town. A few years ago our local community board invited us to spruce up bits of waste land so I planted some natives (kowhai and hebeall sanctioned) along a stream by my place. Just recently another arm of the council sent to cut out dutch elm suckers decided to cut down the native trees as well, such is ignorance!
