Police disbanded their four-houroccupation of an empty, CVS-owned building in Carrboro Saturday, butprotesters are already planning theirnext steps.The group plans to take back the201 N. Greensboro St. property usinga new tactic — gardening.“‘Guerilla planting’ is the term welike to use,” said Alanna Davis, a UNCstudent involved in the group, whichcalls itself the “Carrboro Commune.”Davis said the group decided at ameeting Sunday to plant a community garden at the property, so if town offi-cials tried to remove the plants they would be destroying people’s food.She said the group might meetand discuss their course of action Wednesday.The planning session would occur inCarrboro Town Hall during the sametime CVS developers are scheduled toupdate the community on plans for thecontroversial property, Davis said.
