Guerrilla Unit

Some days it’s sunny. Some days it rains. Such has been the last couple weeks with The Wildflower Project. We’ve taken steps forward and a few to the side – none so far have been backwards. Call it hopeful optimism.

The JOTP project may be stalling a little bit. Not the end of the world; not as soon as we would have hoped though. It’s a testament, really, to how much the Saint Anthony Park community cares about its parks and people. It’s a good thing that people care about these spaces, it gives us hope. Again, hopeful optimism (through weeds of red tape). We’ll get it done #faith #skol

Moving right along, our first seedlings broke the sullied soil of our first guerrilla garden. It’s been a couple weeks since we got em in the ground. We’ve been patiently waiting for a plant get grow’n-on #guerrillaunit

We’re right around 4,000 sq. ft. It could be big though, really big, like 10,000 sq. ft. big. It depends on the soil, though, it could be too contaminated with runoff in certain parts. We will see…

So that’s good. Can’t wait to see some color soon. The payoff should be pretty sweet. Literally, we hope the flowers produce sweet, sweet delicious nectar to attract those little pollinators. Cuz that’s what it’s all about. We help them, they help us. Sweet #harmony

TWP is going on a field trip this weekend. Touring Minnesota on a broheamoth adventure in search of new ideas that we can bring to our mission…Planting with a Purpose.

Here’s a cool link from the UK for your viewing pleasure. This crew is pretty bad ass. Criminals? I don’t think so.

TTFN,

Mr. E
