On guerrilla gardening : a handbook for gardening without boundaries by Richard Reynolds( Book )
21 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 547 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: When Richard Reynolds began planting flowers secretly at night outside his tower block in South London he had no idea he was part of a growing global movement committed to combating the forces of neglect, land shortage and apathy towards public spaces. But his blog attracted other guerrillas from around the world to share their experiences of the horticultural front line with him and become a focal point for guerrilla gardeners everywhere. On Guerrilla Gardening is a lively colorful treatise about why people illicitly cultivate land and how to do it. From discretely beautifying corners of Montreal to striving for green communal space in Berlin and sustainable food production in San Francisco, from small gestures of fun in Zurich to bold political statements in Brazil, cultivating land beyond your boundary is a battle many different people are fighting. Unearthed along the way are the movement's notable historic advances by seventeenth century English radicals, a nineteenth century American entrepreneur and artists in 1970s New York. Reynolds has researched the subject with guerrilla gardeners from thirty different countries and compiles their advice on what to grow, how to cope with adverse environmental conditions, how to seed bomb effectively and to use propaganda to win support. On Guerrilla Gardening gives entertaining inspiration, practical reference and no excuses for not getting out there and gardening

Unshackled : education for freedom, student achievement, and personal emancipation by Greg A Wiggan( file )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 189 libraries worldwide
Harnessing conceptual inspiration through the work of Harriet Tubman and Queen Nanny the Maroon of Jamaica, this book explores the historical and contemporary role that education has and can continually play as an instrument of personal and group liberation. The book discusses the early formations of the Transatlantic Slave Trade, the enslavement of native populations, and the subsequent development of the Underground Railroad and Maroon societies in the Caribbean and Americas as systems of liberation. It investigates the development and maintenance of racial, gendered and class stratifi cation, and provides a personal path to freedom as a context for a broader discussion on using education as a mechanism for dismantling the effects of colonization, miseducation, and social-psychological domination in schools and society. As a contemporary issue, it presents an in depth analysis of the Tucson Unifi ed School District in Arizona, and the controversy surrounding its ethnic studies program as an example of one of the contested sites of curriculum development and student liberation. Additionally, it discusses high performing charter schools as an alternative model of education, which may help to provide a systematic way of unshackling institutional barriers and oppression. Ultimately, this book acknowledges that today the road tofreedom is still one we must all travel as: miseducation, school failure, school dropout, unemployment/underemployment, poverty, neighborhood violence, incarceration, and a growing prison industrial complex are all reminders of the work that still must be accomplished. Like those who historically sacrifi ced their lives to gain freedom and an education, today, with the lingering effects of institutionalized systems of domination, education must continue to be an instrument of social mobility and liberation, if indeed, we are to make schools and society more humane and inclusive towards those who are still waiting to be unshackled. The book presents implications regarding the treaties on education for freedom as a school reform and public policy topic

Guerilla gardening ein botanisches Manifest by Richard Reynolds( Book )
4 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in German and held by 58 libraries worldwide
Saatbomben, Tomatenpflanzen auf Abrissplätzen, Moosbilder an Betonmauern: Eine besondere Form des Gartenbaus, unter dem Namen >>Guerilla Gardening<< erstmals im Manhattan der Siebzigerjahre bekannt geworden, ist zu einer weltweiten Bewegung angewachsen und gewinnt immer mehr Anhänger. Gärtnern ist cool geworden! Guerilla-Gärtner sind heimlich unterwegs: Bei Nacht und Nebel bepflanzen sie Verkehrsinseln, besetzen brachliegende Flächen, indem sie sie fruchtbar machen oder gehen mit Blumen gegen die Verwahrlosung des eigenen Wohnblocks vor - denn der öffentliche Raum gehört allen, und nicht dem Grünflächenamt. Der Londoner Richard Reynolds, selbst seit fünf Jahren im Einsatz als urbaner Gartenguerillero, bietet mit seiner Website einen virtuellen Treffpunkt für diese internationale Community von Botanik-Aktivisten, die sich darüber auch zu gemeinsamen Begrünungsaktionen verabreden. Als Inhaber eines Diploms der Royal Horticultural Society betreibt der 32-Jährige das Gärtnern mit ebensoviel botanischer Leidenschaft wie Willen zum zivilen Ungehorsam und ist heute Europas bekanntester Guerilla-Gärtner
