#SOSGREENraid S.O.S. GREENraid is also a guerrilla gardening activity that Tattfoo uses to transform the landscape. Making paper planes from recycled junk mail to disperse wildflower seeds provides the ability to fly them over rooftops and to pass over chain-link fences. The paper plane is folded in various designs to further enhance the experience of this seed disbursal campaign. Guerrilla gardening is a global regeneration movement first used by Liz Christy in 1973 in Lower Manhattan that brings colour and life to desolate and forgotten urban areas. You don’t need a garden to participate. You can take it upon yourself to brighten up your neighborhood roadsides and vacant lots.

ACTION STEPS 1 - Collect junk mail from the post office and your neighbors (let them know why and invite them to come make handmade paper with you) 2 - Find a good paper making recipe online (see resources) read :

Gorilla Gardening http:// en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guerrilla_gardening

3 - Get all your materials together (invite people to bring their own materials) 4 - Add your native seeds from the seed library to your paper 5 - After the paper dries, fold them like airplanes and go out to vacant lots and Green Raid!

For this green militia offensive we are recruiting you to be a part of the Sustainable Organic Stewardship (S.O.S) movement! Unlike other militia offensives, planting wildflowers is helpful to everyone and harmful to no one! They are beautiful to look at, help clean and aerate the soil, great for the birds, bees and butterflies and offer a fresh perspective on our often under utilized landscape. WE ARE HERE TO RECRUIT YOU. TIME IS RUNNING OUT. EVERYONE MUST DO THEIR PART FOR OUR MOTHER EARTH. BEE STRONG. Wear your best Camouflage outfit. 24
