Stop Sidewalk Garbage Gardens!

Trash PlanterWhen we last checked in with Toronto street artist Posterchild, it was flowers planted in unused newspaper boxes. Now the guerrilla gardener has moved on to unused sidewalk planters, marking what is there to illuminate what is not. In one planter, a plant label reads: WEEDS AND BANANA PEELS. Another reads: NADA.

The action, Posterchild writes at Blade Diary, is an attempt to "encourage/shame municipal authorities into doing some real gardening with their many derelict planter boxes. It is also meant to inspire Guerrilla Gardeners to take action of their own!"
