Los Angeles Cycle Chic

You HAVE to love this article and photo from the Los Angeles Times about a guerilla gardener movement taking root in L.A.
They make seed bombs and toss them onto neglected lots and such, causing plant life to grow. What a groovy idea! And the photo is brilliant - Copenhagen Cycle Chic goes to Los Angeles.
The caption for the photo: "With the seed bombs stowed in her red bag, the stiletto-wearing Caroline takes off on her bike in search of vacant patches of public space. To plant the seed bombs, she digs holes with a trusty tool — the heel of her shoe. “Stilettos work really well,” she says, grinning."
There is a cool photo series about how to make seed bombs, from whence the above photo comes.
Thanks to David for keeping us in the loop by emailing this story. A propos the comments on the previous post about Choosing a Bicycle, he signed his mail: "David (who only owns one bike with a chainguard AND fenders)".
