Richard Reynolds, a British advocate on guerrilla gardening will be speaking to local businesses and residents about the Guerrilla Gardening movement which is changing public and political perception in the UK.

Reynolds began guerrilla gardening ten years ago in his Elephant and Castle neighbourhood in London. He has since created gardens throughout this area in London as well as in Beirut, Prague, Moscow and parts of Africa. He is the author of On Guerrilla Gardening, which traces the history of guerrilla gardening along with details on how to do it.

Guerrilla gardening is about gardening in public places where neglected orphaned land is under-utilised, overgrown or just left to decay. The guerrilla approach is to garden without asking however Reynolds insists this is: “pragmatically appropriate albeit gently provocative.”

Reynolds’ trip to Auckland is in association with the British Council and Auckland City Council’s Edible Garden project which showcased examples of urban edible gardens amongst city concrete, using principles based on permaculture.

Reynolds will discuss the history of the movement, his examples of guerrilla gardens around the World, his learnings being involved in the movement and other projects such as Pimp Your Pavement, applications to a Pacific context, and future thoughts on where the movement is heading.
