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.
