Schwelm blüht auf! - uncivilizing a city;-)

 Now this darkmountain blog certainly got me by the balls, for it´s what I have been doing for years, with great pains for the most part, and I did not realize there were other people like me out there. One big fancy of mine is the "Schwelm blüht auf!" project I undertake with my employer, the GSWS. At the core of the project is something like "official guerrilla gardening";-). We sell wildflower seeds at non-commercial prices to private households (1,50€ per package for 2 - 3 m²) and corporations alike.
 Also, the city management does use the same mixture now, so I can show you how it looks like in the entire city now;-). I am a bit proud of that achievement, for just two years ago, wildflowers were nowhere to be seen in cities. Now the neighbouring communes have jumped on the train - at least private households did.
OH, and we do not exactly encourage guerrilla gardening, do we? Ummmmmmmmmmmmmm.... er... let me put it this way.... erm... we have no control over what you do with those seeds, do we?*ggg*

There will be a photo contest soon, on who has the wildest garden in Schwelm, and all that is officially sanctioned. I have hope.;-)

  1. This is something I have seen on the TV, some towns are trying with the wild flowers meadows in parks to replace "normal" flower beds. It's was so much nicer it was unbelievable. Some started to save money, maybe not the "right" reason but who cares when the wild flowers are growing!

  2. Yap, it is for saving money, but that´s just common sense and no problem with me... I agree, as long as the flowers are growing;-)....

Now go on, discuss and rant and push my ego;-). As long as it´s a respectful message, every comment is welcome!
