Guerrilla Gardening at Occupy Wall Street
At 350.org, we've been excited to explore the connections between the climate movement and the Occupy movement that continues to spread around the world. Today, we wanted to pass along a beautiful film from the crew at Seismologik.com on a unique way to connect food, direct action, and a fundamental new way of looking at the world around us. Here's their movie and description:
Meet the Guerrilla Gardeners. Students from Sterling College in Vermont came down to Occupy Wall Street and showed people how to plant and sow seeds anywhere where there is soil. In this short film, they demonstrate how easy it is to grow winter greens and beets right in the parks flower beds, and then speak earnestly and passionately about the importance of farming, and understanding where our food comes from.
