    The Pothole Gardener

    The Pothole Gardener does guerrilla gardening in East London. The project is “part art project, part labour of love, part experiment, part mission to highlight how shit our roads are.”

    The artist/designer/gardener installs these small dioramas, takes a few pics, then cleans up and leaves. A very pleasant little art project.

    Says the artist:

    I don’t and never have claimed to be the first Guerrilla Gardener, or even the first pothole gardener for that matter – there are loads of examples of similar projects on the Guerrilla Gardening website.

    I created this blog and these pictures to log my gardening activity and take some Snaps, as a creative outlet. I came up with the project as part of my university course, and it has grown from there (no pun intended!).

    Here’s a short video on the project:
