Occupy The Farms Garden In Justin Herman Plaza

Wednesday May 29th, 2013 8:54 AM
After an GMO/MONSANTO protest in San Francisco a group called Occupy the Farm tore up grass and began their own garden in Justin Herman Plaza. The group collectively removed the sod, grated/tilled the dirt and planted dozens of new Kale plants. SF Police and the Park Rangers looked on and monitored their action. The next day the garden was still there, but on Tuesday the kale was gone and new sod was going down.

This was a good march with this nice direct action against this KKKorporate monster Monsanto and the direct action showed how we need Food not Lawns. The lawn is a sign of British Aristocracy showing that you have so much land that you do not have to grow food. How much water is used to water these lawns all over our cities and why are they allowed (Oscar Grant Plaza) and protected at great cost to the community. We need to keep the direct action against our local government and continue to talk to everyone involved including city gardeners to not re sod after the action.

Those are nice pictures. After fifteen years of GM food production in the US, it sounds more than reasonable to investigate all the pros and cons associated with the GM food industry. Garden theater, like the Occupy the Farms Garden action also provide an avenue for promoting the scientific reviews necessary for keeping the public informed on industry action. GM Food Notes
