About the Film:

Growing Cities: A Film about Urban Farming in America

In their search for answers, filmmakers Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette take a road trip and meet the men and women who are challenging the way this country grows and distributes its food, one vacant city lot, rooftop garden, and backyard chicken coop at a time. Join them as they discover that good food isn’t the only crop these urban visionaries are harvesting. They’re producing stronger and more vibrant communities, too.



This is the third of three movie screenings. Each date will feature a different documentary.

Sept 19 – Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

Oct 23 –  Seed: The Untold Story

Nov 15 – Growing Cities: A Film about Urban Farming in America
