Can you insure rented garden polts in the city?

Arob's picture

My friends rents a 20x garden plot down near Cherry Beach in Toronto. When he went to down to harvest some vegetables yesterday (Saturday) he discovered that his entire crop had already been 'harvested' by an organized gang.

Other garden plots were also stolen / destroyed and the thieves worked at night. Everyone is outraged - they called the police - it might be a big newspaper story in Toronto Star next week... I though it would be in the paper today but it wasn't.

Now the entire collective want to band together and hire security guards to 'drive by' a few times a night - and I wondered about getting [URL=]Ontario homeowners insurance[/URL] to cover a rented garden plot? Or could you register the collective as a business and get business insurance? Or rmaybe because he's just renting the plot he could get tenant's insurance? Does anyone have any ideas? advice? insights into this ??
