Divided between the community
In the case of an impending development date being set in motion by developers, this method can be employed prior to the demolition of the wasteland.
Encourage the surrounding community to transplant the plants; flowers shrubs, trees, mosses and weeds from the wasteland into their gardens, balconies and homes. This act can be seen as a token means of safeguarding an element of the environment in question; giving the plants the opportunity to continue the legacy of the wasteland in a different context. The entire process can be achieved with or without the consent of developers and contactors involved in the prescribed future of the wasteland.
Habitation + negotiation/ implementation + transplantation = conservation
