On 1 May guerrilla gardeners around the world sow sunflowers all over the place. It’s a way to bring beauty, bumble bees and bundles of fun to your neighborhood.

I’m going to buy a big bag of seeds so if you’d like to come beautify Leeds with me, meet at 14 Spring Grove Walk LS6 1RR at 12am May 1st, i’ll also leave a few jars in places (Co-op, Peanut Gallery etc) so you can pick up a pocket full and sow when ever and where ever, would be nice to do some around campus, and was also thinking along Burley Road.

If you would like to do more guerilla gardening type things in the future like seed bombs, pavement pimping and food growing in neglected areas, I’m starting up an email list so send me a message-

You can also send me your address and I can post you some seeds to get going if ye like.

See you on May the 1st!!
