Wenatchee River Institute is a proud sponsor of the 2017-2018 Wenatchee Valley Environmental Film and Lecture Series presented by the Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center.
The Garden follows the plight of 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 have since created a miracle in one of
the country’s most blighted neighborhoods. Growing their own food.
Feeding their families. Creating a Community. When the property is sold
to a wealthy developer, the farmers organize, fight back and demand
answers. The film explores and exposes the fault lines in American
Society and raises crucial and challenging questions about liberty, equality and justice.
