Today, Jennie D. (AKA Blue Lotus) joins us to delve into the world of guerrilla gardening and its role in enhancing community spaces. Jennie and her group are champions of the belief that “plants don’t need permission and neither do you,” a credo that fuels their mission. Tune in to discover the intriguing intersection of proactive anarchism and permaculture through their stories.
Jennie D. is a dynamic figure, blending her talents as an artist, activist, and avid gardener into impactful community initiatives. She manages a front yard community garden that doubles as a trade stand, fostering a local exchange of organic produce by day. By night, she transforms into Blue Lotus, leading her guerrilla garden crew, The Vegilantes, on covert missions to cultivate urban oases. Their ethos is simple yet profound: healthy produce should be accessible to all, and they infuse this mission with a dose of humor to nourish both body and spirit.

Beyond her nocturnal gardening escapades, Jennie serves as the co-founder and director of Daylight Rising, a community pulsating with freedom and creativity. This collective is dedicated to sparking a cultural renaissance through the conscious expression of creative arts. Jennie is at the forefront of organizing events, workshops, and projects that span a diverse spectrum including music, art, comedy, theater, education, and self-empowerment.
In addition to her community work, Jennie is passionate about truth-based media, offering a wealth of resources available for download, print, and distribution at no cost, supporting the spread of knowledge and empowerment. These resources can be found at http://pathwaytofreedom.net/media. Her creative prowess extends to graphic design, where she offers her services through Vi’s Eyes Art & Design, crafting visuals that capture the essence of her vibrant spirit and the causes she stands for.
