The Pothole Gardener
What is a gardener with no garden to do? Australian born Londoner and green thumb Steeve Wheen has the answer with his ‘The Pothole Gardener’ project!
The project - which Wheen describes as part creative pursuit, part passion and part urban experiment – was inspired by a guerrilla gardening efforts, as well as a wish to bring a little greenery to the city streets ‘one pothole at a time’.
Wheen fills East London’s pesky potholes in roads and footpaths with soil and living plants, decorating them with miniature props to create gorgeously tiny worlds. Scroll the gallery to view our favourites!
