Title: Athenians take green matters into own hands
Post by: Goochola on May 01, 2009, 08:50:58 PM
Hi everyone,

I thought folks might want to know about a park that suddenly occupied a parking lot  ;) in this dirty, concrete jungle of a city, Athens Greece.

Please click on the link below for the article that was published in Kathimerini:

There are so many vacant lots here filled with rubbish just itching to be seed bombed...

On a sadder note, some parks seem to be converted into parking garages overnight, as was the fate of this park, near Amerikis Square, again in Athens, Greece :'(:
