Occupy Wall Street works to awaken American minds to the corruption that has brought our country to the brink of economic ruin. But another goal of the OWS movement is to prove that by working together, we the people can be the solution to society’s most dire crises.
With the population cruising past 7 billion just days ago, there are more mouths to feed on this planet than ever before. Experts say that if the agriculture and food production systems stay the way they are, millions will go hungry, and our soil and water will continue to bear the consequences.
But Occupy Wall Street volunteers envision something different: a world where the planting and growing of one’s own food is celebrated, and space is utilized efficiently to maximize growing power.
Check out the video below to learn more about the guerrilla gardening project at Occupy Wall Street:
One Pack Productions and Seismologik Media plan to launch a crowdfunding campaign that will make it possible for guerrilla gardeners to travel to other Occupations, community groups and schools teaching sustainaable food growing techniques to the people. Stay tuned for details on how you can support that project!
