Transition Berkeley invites you to an evening about how gardens help build communities in urban settings. Come join us for locally grown garden snacks, meet and greet at 6:30. At 7pm we’ll see a film about an amazing garden in Southern California, learn why it was threatened and how the community came together to try to save it.
And we’ll get a report on the state of community gardens here in our own backyard from local gardeners Bonnie Borucki (Ashby Garden), Carole Bennett-Simmons, Dave Drummond (Peralta Gardens), Alexa Hauser (Edible Landscape Project), Carol Wolfley (Berkeley Post Office Garden) and Beebo Turman (Berkeley Gardening Collaborative).
The Garden is about a 14 acre community garden at 41st and Alameda in South Central Los Angeles: the largest of its kind in the United States. Started as a form of healing after the devastating L.A. riots in 1992, the South Central Farmers had created a miracle in one of the country’s most blighted neighborhoods. Growing their own food. Feeding their families. Creating a community. The film follows the plight of the farmers, from the tilled soil of this urban farm to the polished marble of City Hall. Mostly immigrants from Latin America, from countries where they feared for their lives if they were to speak out, we watch them organize, fight back, and demand answers.
