Residents transform a drab street lined by a concrete wall into a liveable place using potted plants and a public bench. Great tactical urbanism intervention!
When a pothole appeared in front of Stéphan Vigneault’s Gatineau, Que., home, he took it upon himself to fill it with dirt — and then flowers. The Post‘s Kyla Garvey spoke to the guerrilla gardener on Tuesday:
When did you first plant the garden?
Last summer I first planted it with a neighbour at night, filled the pothole. We did it at night so that people walked by in the morning and would be surprised by it. We chose a night without moon, and did it. This year we planted it again two weeks ago.

Putting a message on a wall can be a much more effective way to reach the masses than expecting them to go find a book and learn it themselves. Some men just want to watch the world learn, regardless of medium. This collection of street arts details some memorable lines from famous books, hit the pictures to see which author and title, if you didnt already recognize them immediately.
