Victoria students turn quad into Urban Garden

March 28, 2010

Last week hundreds of students in Victoria, BC celebrated planting season by occupizing the quad of their school, ripping up the lawn and turning it into fertile soil. The aim of the project was to bring the community together produce food for their own resources. On Friday, the administration destroyed the 10 new garden plots, arresting one student who stood in the path of one of their bulldozers. Students have responded by storming the office of the administrator who ordered the destruction, and also vow to replant the gardens once again.
