Guerilla Gardening - Dorset style

How excited was Ms Tagalong to see these packets of seeds carelessly strewn around the kitchen counter of someone who of course will remain nameless due to the sensitive nature of this revelation.

Far be it for Ms Tagalong to inadvertently cause the imprisonment of one of her true friends for the cause. But oh, did it bring back fond memories of the guerilla nature of the start of Tighes Hill Garden.

You can do it, take over some space, call it your own, start planting and there you are two and a half years later a wonderful community space with films, pizza nights and regular Friday night cocktails.
This is of course not the intention of the Dorset wildflower seeds but on reading the packet the description could be of our wonderful garden community.

A growing group of revolutionaries that work in the darker places of society striving to make a positive difference in their communities. Chalk and cheese? Check them out!

The very first working bee!
'You've come a long way, baby,' comes to my mind although of course the phrase to some of us recalls some radical feminist advertising. Well, if you call selling noxious weed to women radical. Some others may think the link is with Fat Boy Slim – but no, Ms Tagalong just wanted to let Ms Mova know and the many others who are labouring intensely how wonderful you are and to keep that guerilla spirit alive! Let it be known there are others out there in the world who are making in their own small way a change to the way we live!
