Flagstaff Community Film Night
FLAGSTAFF COMMUNITY FILM NIGHT FEATURING:
Can You Dig This
Thursday, August 10th
South Los Angeles. What comes to mind is gangs, drugs, liquor stores, abandoned buildings and vacant lots. The last thing that you would expect to find is a beautiful garden sprouting up through the concrete, coloring the urban landscape. As part of an urban gardening movement taking root in South LA, people are planting to transform their neighborhoods and are changing their own lives in the process. Calling for people to put down their guns and pick up their shovels, these “gangster gardeners” are creating an oasis in the middle of one of the most notoriously dangerous places in America.
“CAN YOU DIG THIS” follows the inspirational journeys of four unlikely gardeners, discovering what happens when they put their hands in the soil. This is not a story of science and economics. This is a story of the human spirit, inspiring people everywhere to pick up their shovels and “plant some sh**.”
A Benefit for Terra BIRDS
Terra BIRDS’ mission is to educate and empower young people through gardening to help prepare them as the stewards of a sustainable future for humanity.
We are a non-profit team of educators, professional gardeners and youth advocates offering programs based around the themes of stewardship of the environment, personal wellness, community strength and resiliency, and occupational success. Terra BIRDS engages people in four distinct program areas, all designed to educate and inspire local youth and adults to act as stewards of their communities and lands:
SCHOOL GARDENS. Environmental stewardship, personal wellness, and applied science for elementary student gardeners caring for their school grounds.
JOBS. Green collar employment, vocational and life skills development, and on-the-job training for at-risk youth.
COMMUNITY GARDENS. Providing Flagstaff’s urban community gardeners a place to grow, harvest, and learn together.
