Growing Cities is an inspiring documentary about urban farming in America. At a time when so much negative attention is paid to the food system, this film tells the stories of city-dwellers who are transforming their communities–one vacant lot, backyard beehive, and rooftop farm at a time.
This screening is free and open to the public. Community sponsors of the screening will be available after the film to answer questions about urban farming, community gardens, access to healthy food, and more.
May 15 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Faulker Galley, Santa Barbara Public Library
Sponsors: Community Environmental Council, Food Bank of Santa Barbara County, Orfalea Foundation’s School Food Initiative, Santa Barbara Food Alliance, Santa Barbara Permaculture Network, and the Center for Urban Agriculture at Fairview Gardens.
