Weeds as art, sort of

Ever heard of weed bombing?  It’s probably not what you think.

A group in Miami is tired of overgrown weeds on vacant lots and public properties – weeds they say the city maintenance crews are in charge of clearing. So the group of friends has decided to take the matter into their own hand by spray painting the weeds bright colors to draw attention to the neglect.

Chief Bombadier Brad Knoefler told Miami’s New Times the strategy has actually improved the group’s relations with the Downtown Development Authority, the organization charged with the area’s upkeep.

It may not be the easiest way to rid weeds – and let’s hope they know what’s a weed and what’s not – but it is a decent strategy to gain people’s attention.
