Who's planting these flowers? How did they get here? You hear people ask these questions as they walk along the streets of Park Slope, a famous neighborhood in Brooklyn in NY City.
We know. It's all being done in secret by one of our members, who shall remain anonymous. Here's why. She's one of New York City's "Guerilla Gardeners"—a loosely formed group that works to try to brighten the city landscapes, even in some of the grittiest neighborhoods. She explained that the Guerilla Gardeners don't always follow all the city's rules, but they do always add color and beauty to the urban scene! She asked us to donate some seeds, we were happy to, and just look what she's done—all in secret!
By the way, Park Slope is one of New York's most historic neighborhoods, famous for old brownstones, and the proximity of Prospect Park, Flatbush Avenue, and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.
