Guerilla Gardening on Capitol Hill (DC) – 3/9/09

Cathy, Johanna, Anne, Shanna, Andrew, Tom and random strangers liberate a small plot of urban soil on Capitol Hill. Victory Garden Direct Action mobilizes local people to identify and implement small-scale community projects for immediate positive results in their neighborhoods. We believe that there is no substitute for individual and collective effort, local knowledge, hard work and direct action to solve problems and empower communities. VGDA encourages people to self organize and take on doable projects that meet local needs and builds on the ideal of shared social conscience.
