Video: Occupy Gardens at Queen's Park

| September 10, 2012

On May 1, 2012, the first seeds were planted at Queen's Park (directly below Ontario's provincial legislature building) by a movement partly drawn from the wider Occupy movement called Occupy Gardens. The community took over a plot of land designated as a space for communal gardening and stewardship.

I recently visited this Occupy Garden a.k.a. The People's Peas Garden at Queen's Park in Toronto.
