"The Garden" Screening
"The Garden" is the story of the fourteen-acre community garden in South Central Los Angeles. Started as a form of healing after the devastating L.A. riots in 1992, the South Central Farmers created a miracle in one of the country's most blighted neighborhoods. Growing their own food. Feeding their families. Creating a community.
The film follows the plight of the farmers, from the tilled soil of this urban farm to the polished marble of City Hall. Mostly immigrants from Latin America, from countries where they feared for their lives if they were to speak out, we watch them organize, fight back, and demand answers.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Rufina Juarez, lead organizer of the South Central Farmers and the film's protagonist, Shereen D'Souza of the California Food and Justice Coalition and Terry Corwin, Executive Director of the Land Trust of Santa Cruz County.
All proceeds benefit the food justice work of the California Food and Justice Coalition.
Doors open at 6:30, film starts at 7.
