Food Justice

Food Justice is a documentary about the food justice movement, made by Martina Brimmer and Zora Tucker in 2006. The first-time film makers set out to tell the story of unequal access to food in our minority communities as a symptom of environmental racism and classism. The extraordinary vision of various organizations in West Oakland and San Francisco brings to light the spirit of the food justice movement. Striving to cultivate justice in their neighborhoods and nourish their communities groups such as Oakland Based Urban Gardens, People's Grocery, Mandela's Market and the volunteers of the Alemany Farm are confronting social, agricultural and environmental issues that affect us all.
Movie Length: 7 min.
Directed by: Martina Brimmer and Zora Tucker


Forest Gardening

Both informative and inspiring, this video features Robert Hart in his pioneering Shropshire garden, explaining the principles and practice of forest gardening; Ken Fern of Plants for a Future, who grows 1500 species of useful perennial plants on a windy plot in Cornwall; and Mike and Julia Guerra who have created a tiny garden behind their maisonette in Hertfordshire, using permaculture, forest gardening and organic principles. For as little as two hours work a week, they can supply produce for six months of the year.
Movie Length: 40 min.
