Guerilla 'gardeners' strike again . .

From the Argus:-
"Activists are trying to stop landowners clearing them from a "community garden" on waste ground in Brighton.
About 30 people have gathered at a site they have named The Mound, at the corner of Church Street and Portland Street in North Laine." Read more.

It is probably quite a valuable haven for wild life just as it is. Buddleia , for example, is well known for attracting butterflies. I should imagine that the "gardeners" and the resulting hullabaloo they cause will only have the reverse effect. If the 'garden' they created in Lewes Road is an example of what guerilla gardeners do, I would rather they left this particular plot  as a little bit of 'wilderness' for a little bit longer..
