Their outrage at the lack of usable green space in the city center was their impetus. To protect them, the group covered the plants with small umbrella-like greenhouses to shelter them from pollution. Small animals accompany the plants and live with them under their refuge, which is brightly lit with lights. The group was also aware that they would find few instances of plants growing in the cracks, so they also added their own plantings. Taking hardy cuttings and quality soil, they filled cracks and holes in hopes that the plants would take root. Luzinterruptus’ goal was to draw attention to the lack of green space, to pay homage to the insignificant weeds that beautifully grow in unexpected places as well as to add even more green life to the city streets.

Windowfarms. A guerrilla gardening blog… Information and Recipes about New Health Enhancing, Whole Food, Plant-Based Diet. Proposed Food Bill. NZ food bill to make growing food a government privilege rather than a human right. (NaturalNews) The God-given human right to freely cultivate food is under attack in New Zealand (NZ) as special interest groups and others are currently attempting to push a "food security" bill through the nation's parliament that will strip individuals of their right to grow food, save seeds, and even share the fruits of their labor with friends and family members. In accordance with the World Trade Organization's (WTO) Codex Alimentarius scheme for global food control, the NZ Food Bill, if passed, will essentially transfer primary control of food from individuals to corporations under the guise of food safety. And unless massive public outcry and awakened consciences within the NZ government are able to put a stop to it, the bill could become law very soon.

According to NZ Food Security, a group working to protect the food freedom of New Zealanders, the bill will turn growing and sharing food into a government-granted privilege rather than a human right.
