Amid a growing food crisis, this morning workers from the City of Toronto were ordered by City of Toronto Parks Director Richard Ubbens that all live plants and food be removed from the People's Peas Garden in Queens Park. They were ordered to take the plants and food to the dump and lay sod overtop of this most beautiful free community food garden, without warning, without a chance to remove the rare heirloom plant species or harvest the food.
The garden was planted by Occupy Gardens and allies on May 1st, in defense of local and global food security. http://www.activistpost.com/2012/09/city-of-toronto-workers-destroy-free.html
