Kia ora e hoa ma,
You will have received the email message now about the International Guerrilla Sunflower Day on the 1st of May. This tradition was started in Belgium where it's Spring now and conditions more favorable for planting Sunflowers. So that we don't miss out on the fun here in Aotearoa, I propose we swap the sunflowers for tulips (October the 9th is International Tulip Guerrilla Gardening Day), and plant our sunflowers on tulip day. For good measure I'm going to throw in some daffodil bulbs which have a similar cheering effect to sunflowers.
It would be great to have tulips and daffodils popping up all over the streets this coming Spring (I love bulbs they're so secretive!), something to look forward to at the end of winter.
I'm in Auckland & planning to keep it local (Onehunga), get in touch if you're in the Auckland area and want to plan some future actions.
If you don't have a band of troops there's no reason you can't do a solo mission with a handful of bulbs and a trowel and a little stealth...
Resistance is fertile, see you on the streets.
