Vigilante Gardener

I decide to illegally grow a vegetable garden on a neglected patch of land in Brooklyn. The garden is located on 8th Ave and 5th Street in Brooklyn, New York. Feel free to stop by and water it if you’re in the area.

      Wonderful idea! I’ve just started growing a few vegetables in pots on my balcony, and I find it so rewarding to watch them grow… and some of them grow so quickly! And in no time at all you have delicious home-grown organic vegetables.
      I don’t think anyone will complain about your vigilante gardening… nobody cared about the patch of unused dirt before, did they?

      Cool idea. I plant a garden every year but live in the country so it is easy. My questions, Why is it illegal? Are you just calling it illegal to bring attention to your video? Can you actually show statutes of the law making it illegal? I hardly think anyone including the rightful owners would object to the usefulness you are putting this otherwise unuseful piece of ground to.

      @Ezlpo I LOL’d Ez. I think he probably just meant non-fertilized soil.

      Any updates on the garden? I think this is such a cool idea and why would anybody get you in trouble for making such an ugly spot beautiful and useful again?

      I saw the garden this weekend and can report that there were some hearty tomatoes almost ready to be picked and eaten. It is coming along nicely – I hope this continues all over.
