TOOLS FOR HIM is a new collection of accessories designed to function as guerrilla gardening tools. Tools for Him presents a brass grill with telescopic seed shooter and a ball cap with rake attachment. The ball cap is used to covertly disrupt soil for effective planting while the grill employs the users breath to spit seeds into hard-to-reach areas. Each tool is paired with dance moves and seed varieties to stylishly integrate gardening assaults into the guerrilla gardener's daily routine.

The Subversive Gardener is a series by Vanessa Harden of ongoing public interventions connected to the guerrilla gardening subculture – a group of individuals who secretly meet to illegally plant flowers, shrubs and vegetables in neglected urban spaces.
