[ARCHIVED] You're Invited: Sustainability Film Series Returns

Urban farming can help us grow food closer to home — and it can also help us produce stronger communities.

Learn more as our Sustainability Film Series presents a screening of “Growing Cities: A Film About Urban Farming in America” at 6 p.m. Nov. 6, 2014. The free event will be held at Blakely Hall, 2550 N.E. Park Drive. Free snacks will be provided, too.

In their search for answers, “Growing Cities” filmmakers Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette take a road trip and meet the men and women who are challenging the way our country grows and distributes its food — one vacant city lot, rooftop garden and backyard chicken coop at a time.

They discover that good food isn't the only crop these urban visionaries are harvesting. They’re producing stronger and more vibrant communities, too.

Meet local community P-Patch expert Julie Bryan, and other groups building stronger communities around growing food, to learn how you can contribute to and participate in the network of food gardens in our community.
