On Wednesday, November 19th, the 7th Street Garden will be hosting a fundraiser/film screening of The Garden.
The film takes you behind the scenes into one of the most incendiary L.A. situations of recent times; the fierce battle over a 14-acre community garden at 41st and Alameda Streets known as the South Central Farm. The Garden took the top prize in June at the Silverdocs documentary festival in Washington, D.C. (The trailer is available on YouTube.)
Playing at: Goethe Theater (812 7th Street, NW).
Doors 6pm. Film Starts 6:30pm. Enjoy seasonal foods and drinks.
Tickets are $20 each, and are available at the door OR online at America the Beautiful Fund's web site.
The 7th Street Garden has been doing great work in our community for 10 years now, both growing produce for community members, and advocating on behalf of low-income residents for nutritional, secure food sources. Recently, we also worked together to launch the DC Food Finder.
