Rebel Gardeners

Group plants vegetable seeds throughout Buenos Aires, Argentina, aiming to provide organic food for city residents.

The Articultores, a group of artists, are planting thousands of vegetable seeds in neglected parks and lots throughout Buenos Aires. Translated as ‘Arty Farmers’, the group of guerilla gardeners says it is educating people on cultivating open-space gardens of free vegetables to combat rising food prices. “Our goal is for people to find carrots, [zucchini], or quinoa when they take a stroll… And we want to show them how to care after the crops,” says Articultore coordinator Judith Villamayor. Seed-planting raids are called ‘performances,’ and occur during the day in order to encourage people to go organic.
