Occupy Red Deer is sowing the seeds of compassion.

The non-profit group hopes to make a positive impact in Red Deer by donating their yield from their two garden plots to non-profit organizations that help others.

Recently the group donated green beans, broad (fava) beans and peas to Loaves and Fishes.

Derrick Callan, Occupy Red Deer facilitator, said they want to challenge other non-profit groups to dig in their gardens and give to other organizations that help the less fortunate.

Occupy Red Deer is a social action group that defends and advocates for the dignity and fair treatment of all people.
