Title: Community gardens video
Post by: Grubby Urchin on March 02, 2007, 04:14:35 AM
Does anybody know of any documentaries about the New york Community Gardens? Over in the UK we're fighting a battle to save a hundred year old allotments/gardens from being concreted over for the 2012 olympic games. So it would be a massive inspiration for people to be able to see a film about the plight of the community gardens.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Take it easy

Yes... we've borrowed a couple of different documentaries on community and urban gardening from The Film Connection (a public film library)

Specific titles on community gardening:
 - City Farmers (
 - A Lot in Common (

Additional films on environmental and community topics that we found interesting:
 - The Park (
 - The Gleaners & I (
 - Livable Landscapes: By Chance or By Choice? (
 - Broken Limbs (
 - The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill (
 - Blue Vinyl (
 - Affluenza (
 - Fed Up! Genetic Engineering, Industrial Agriculture and Sustainable Alternatives (
