About the Movie
From rooftop farmers to backyard beekeepers, Americans are growing food like never before. Growing Cities goes coast to coast to tell the inspiring stories of these intrepid urban farmers, activists, and everyday city-dwellers who are challenging the way this country feeds itself. From those growing in backyards to make ends meet to educators teaching kids to eat healthier, viewers find that urban farming is about much more than simply good food.
Cultivating community- Grow where you live
These guys really went everywhere! I rented this doc to gain some perspective on food justice and urban farming as I begin my senior thesis in sociology. All of the stories were unique and charming, but well-rounded by touching on historical themes and social influences. Really great production quality, and using Conor Oberst’s music given their Omaha hometowns was cute too.
