GROWING CITIES, presented by The Institute for Urban Homesteading (Doc Night)
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.
Spring Kick-off and Urban Ag Social:
To kick off their 2014 season the Institute of Urban Homesteading in collaboration with The New Parkway Theater. The evening will include updates on Oakland Food Policy, a raffle drawing and a homemade jam tasting and swap. Bring a jar of homemade jam to share and one to trade!
