Edmonton GG Featured in View Weekly

So begins the article seen in last week's View Weekly. Overall, I thought it read quite well, though, in the future I'd prefer to not have my name and the words "improvised explosive devices" in the same paragraph. (I'd like to take this moment to reassure the public that we are NOT blowing anything up.)

I much enjoyed the artwork and felt that the article did a decent job at highlighting some of our initiatives and providing a little history on the movement. With the exception of perhaps being overly critical of my own quotes (my doing, not the View's) I feel as though this article provides a great pushing off point for this guerrilla gardening year.
