Christiane  Habermalz - Incitement to Horticultural Disobedience


Saving plants and feeding beetles – the guerrilla gardener tells us how to find happiness in the little things

Planting shrubs in public parks at night, secretly planting greenery on bare roadside, subtly subverting the petunia culture: guerrilla gardener Christiane Habermalz is busy in her Berlin kiez creating an island for all sorts of insects. She knows you have to start small in order to save the tiniest creatures.

With a lot of humour and enthusiasm for her little protégés she tells us about her subversive acts of horticultural disobedience, setbacks and success stories. She lets us in on what she herself learns about plants and insects and opens our eyes for a hidden universe we all too often merely pass by.

An inspiring incitement packed with useful suggestions for how each one of us can actually do something – and what's more it's huge fun to read.
