greening trafalgar

trafalgar-b2.jpg

last week i was amazed and inspired to read in the new york times, treehugger, and archinect that the infamous trafalgar square in london was greened overnight with over 20,000 square feet of sod from nearby environmentally conscious farmland.  the result was vastly impressive but unfortunately lasted only two days.  as the times was reporting this was another example of guerrilla gardening; a number of london sites have been greened in the past and apparently the group is working on future sites as well.  i thought this installation was incredibly creative, i only wish i could’ve been there to see it and walk through the square while covered in grass.
