May Film Showing

Growing Cities is a film about urban farming in America. At a time when so much negative 
attention is paid to the food system—from mad cows to factory farms—this film tells the 
inspiring stories of city-dwellers who are transforming their communities one vacant lot, 
backyard beehive, and rooftop farm at a time. Along the way these growers show that the 
urban farming movement is about a whole lot more than simply food and that everyone can 
take part in creating a healthier, more just, and sustainable food system. 

Join us and co-hosts Phoenix Earth Food Co-op and The University Church
