Growing Cities Trailer ~ a Film about Urban Gardening in America

growingcities


 


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.

The film is being released in Fall 2013 at film festivals and special event screenings. You’re invited to follow, participate in, and support the Growing Cities journey to an America that believes in a more sustainable, just, and healthy future for all.
