Steve Wheen started the Pothole Gardener project as part of a university course. Over time, the project turned into a blog that follows his gardening efforts around East London. Wheen describes his endeavors as "part art project, part labour of love, part experiment, part mission to highlight how s*** our roads are – the pictures and gardens are supposed to put smiles on peoples faces and alert them to potholes!"
Although the miniature pothole gardens are cute and tiny, they pack a strong message. Hopefully the city of London notices them enough to start doing something about the very rampant pothole problem.
