This one may not be for everyone - it's a little more political than your average dig. We're going to dig up a few little patches of grass on some city-owned property and plant things like the Aztec triad instead. going to film it as part of my documentary on urban agriculture. If people want their identities masked that's no problem, in fact that could be part of the fun.
I'm going to leave behind a little laminated sign that explains the purpose of the dig, which is to raise awareness about how our tax dollars and public spaces are being used to water grass in a semi-desert when they could be used to create green jobs, reduce our consumption of fossil fuels used to transport food and make better use of our limited water.
I'm open to suggestions for locations - I'll be out scouting tomorrow. I'm thinking maybe a library at this point, or a DWP building with grass in front would be great.
Ideas, criticisms, and comments all very welcome. We are about four at this point, looking for like-minded guerilla gardeners.

much for anonymity, right? You can find a link to the doc's web page here: http://karneyhatch.com/karneyhatchdotcom/?page_id=285
I think we'll meet beforehand around 8 or 8:30 and start digging around 9:30. I'll post the location as a comment to this post no later than about 6 PM on Thursday. Cheers!
