Day 89

Ms. Hattie

March 28th, 2012

Looking like a woman who spends most of her time knitting and saying "Oh, dearie", Hattie Carthan (whom we've met before) was a relentless force behind the nascent community garden movement 40-some years ago, co-founding the Green Guerillas (whose early tactics included throwing seed-filled water balloons into vacant lots) when she was already well into her 70s.

    wise and smart woman. I like her tactics to beautify vacant lots.
