Listen to an interview with Jacob Kearey-Moreland, an organizer with Occupy Gardens Toronto that held a Seed Exchange outside the Toronto Stock Exchange on Monday.
From their Facebook page:
A growing collective of gardeners plotting to plant & tend food gardens all over the city, and share the produce with all who are hungry.
Inspired by the Occupy Movement, Occupy Gardens Toronto represents the next step in our (vegetable) stand against inequality, corporate corruption and greed, growing hunger and the destruction of life itself.
The FOOD tent at Occupy Toronto was one of our greatest success stories, serving hundreds of people free meals every day. Now it’s time we start think about and plotting out the future, imagine the possibilities if we all grew together.

Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
