Do you guys live in South Philly?  I think danger of frost ends mid-April so we can get our seeds/plants out then.  For now I'm just sprouting seeds in my house.  What places do you have in mind for guerrilla gardening?

Wow...I am so glad I found you guys...I am totally into this idea. I have some plants already started here. I am also in the process of ordering some heirloom corn and beans. I have some great spots scouted out.  I would like to get these lots as community gardens, but I figure we should get out there and garden them without permission because it would be a shame to wait for all of the red tape!!  Please feel free to shoot me a message for my number.  I live close to Christian. Keep strong ninjas!

Okay I just seed bombed some zinnias near Broad and Bainbridge.. then I guy stepped on my spot a minute later.  I'll need to get some mini fences.

But I also found a nice hidden spot in Grad Hospital area to plant some lima beans and stuck a little sign in the ground.  I'm slightly more hopeful about these, but seed bombing is gonna be a bit tricky.

I still have pumpkin and bean seeds, plenty of bulbs, and sunflower seeds.  Maybe some of us could meet up for Sunflower Seed day May 1st?  I live near Italian Market and have some parks in mind!

Hey, i think the time to plant without the worry of frost is officially after mother's day --- we should set up a time and date to go out and do some community action in the streets. 

Anyone down?  I know a few good spots in the bella vista area and close to south street.
