Film Screening: Growing Cities

Dayton, OH 

Saturday, May 2, 2015
3 p.m.

Open/Close

You are invited to attend a free film screening, hosted by the Montgomery County Food Policy Coalition. Commissioner Judy Dodge will convene a brief discussion with the audience following the film.

About the film:
Growing Cities is a film about urban farming in America. At a time when so much negative attention is paid to the food system – from mad cows to factory farms – this film tells the inspiring stories of city-dwellers who are transforming their communities one vacant lot, backyard beehive, and rooftop farm at a time. Join the filmmakers on a cross-county road trip, and along the way these growers show us that the urban farming movement is about a whole lot more than simply food and that everyone can take part in creating a healthier, more just, and sustainable food system.
