Community Garden Documentary Screening
June 24, 2012 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The Melvin Hazen Community Garden is featured in a documentary being screened at The Fridge DC on Sunday, June 24th at 3 p.m. A Community of Gardeners focuses on the people who tend plots at seven diverse community gardens in Washington, D.C. and shows how these green spaces are changing their lives, their communities and their environment.
The festival will also premiere Planting Community: The Story of Wangari Gardens, a five-minute documentary produced by Still Life Projects that tells the story of Josh Singer and his determination to reclaim an abandoned piece of land in D.C.’s Park View neighborhood.
The screenings will be followed by a Q & A and discussion with filmmaker Cintia Cabib, Josh Singer of Wangari Gardens and Kate Lee of the Brainfood Youth Garden. There will be a social hour afterwards with drinks and treats!
