Guerilla Grafting: A new 'branch' of occupy?

A group of underground horticulturalists in San Francisco are secretly occupying unused, ornamental trees by manually grafting fruit-bearing branches onto them. This practice turns decorative, forgotten trees into useable, nutritious forms of urban agriculture. As their statement declares: "We aim to turn city streets into food forests, and unravel civilization one branch at a time." Now, they have created a website to help others locate trees, and facilitate autonomous grafting cells to operate throughout the country.
