The South Lamar Alamo is doing three screenings of the superb documentary, "The Garden." It's about the South Central Farmers in LA, and their struggle to save their community garden - the largest community garden in the U.S. I saw it tonight, and I can't express how glad I am that I saw it. Not only is it a compelling story with an emotional telling, it can teach us a lot about the culture and importance of community gardening. Also, it's not preachy. Check it out - the film won't be on DVD for a while.
The director is also at the showing, and does a Q & A session afterwards. It's playing Monday and Tuesday at 7 pm.
