For most people, places that have become damaged through human or natural events are nothing but eyesores, best avoided if no official agency has some kind of plan to clean them up. But it’s possible to discover meaning and vitality in a clear-cut forest, a mountaintop flattened by coal mining, or a street corner where violence occurred. We do this by visiting these places and making “guerrilla beauty” for them—anonymous, bold, spontaneous tokens of gratitude or consolation. Each of the 101 Ways to Make Guerrilla Beauty offered here is easy to do, whether you’re alone, with a friend, or with a group. They don’t require advance planning, expert advice, or special tools. Trebbe Johnson’s simple practices reflect a profound and innovative approach to surviving the environmental problems every one of us is facing, but to thriving in the midst of them.
