Oh Montréal, tu m'inspires.
My work sends me to some pretty awesome places. For the past week, I’ve been in Montréal on a series of video shoots with my friend/sometimes workmate Les. During today’s down time, we visited a garden that’s part of an urban gardening project spearheaded by Destination Centre-Ville. There are six gardens all together, each bordering a downtown parking lot. The gardens are filled with tomatoes, herbs, grapes and raspberries free for everyone to enjoy.
Montréal definitely sets a great example of how to use otherwise unused space to provide food and jobs, spark thought and conversation, and ultimately encourage a change in how we view and use public spaces.
