Growing Cities: Urban Farming in America

  • December 03, 2014

  • Meeting Room A Iowa City Public Library

Growing Cities documents urban farming in America. Take a road trip and meet the men and women who are challenging the way this country grows and distributes its food, one vacant city lot, rooftop garden, and backyard chicken coop at a time. Join them as they discover that good food isn’t the only crop these urban visionaries are harvesting. They’re producing stronger and more vibrant communities, too. Check out the trailer:

Frost is in the air, finals are almost vanquished, and the year is drawing to a close: what better way to celebrate a successful season of growth than to view a film hosted by the University of Iowa Student Garden?

Join us on Wednesday, December 3rd at 7pm in Meeting Room A of the Iowa City Public Library. Seasonal refreshments will be provided; the event is free for all. We hope you turnip! All we are saying is give peas a chance!
