Plant This Movie

Hatch, Karney; Kanopy (Firm)

Summary
Featuring leading urban farming advocates, the film explores the inspiring success story of Cuba, and travels globally to communities of urban farmers in Shanghai, Calcutta, Addis Ababa, London, and Lima. In the US, the film visits innovative projects in New York, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Berkeley, Philadelphia and Portland - including the largest rooftop garden in the world, blighted areas transformed into urban farms, student-run gardens and CSA, and other projects that show the explosion of creative local efforts. The film begins by tracing the evolution of the household yard in America from a necessary source for food to the ubiquitous lawn, now the # 1 irrigated urban crop. After the highly productive Victory Gardens of WWII, the country moved rapidly to a more centralized food system, and people became divorced from the source of their food. As Plant This Movie vividly illustrates, the ingredients for scaling up urban farming and reconnecting people to the food we eat are now all around us. The movement provides hope that people across the nation and the world will once again have access to healthier, locally grown food, using the land near where they live as a primary source. World Premiere, Portland Film Festival Awards and Screenings Official Selection, Wild and Scenic Film Festival FICMA Environmental Film Festival, Barcelona, Spain.
