Spring Kick-Off! Movie Night and Urban Ag Social at the New Parkway

Tuesday | April 08, 2014 | 6:00 pm

The New Parkway Theater | 474 24th Street, Oakland, CA 94612

Featuring a screening of the documentary “Growing Cities” — In their search for answers, filmmakers Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette take a road trip and meet the men and women who are challenging the way this country grows and distributes its food, one vacant city lot, rooftop garden, and backyard chicken coop at a time. Join them as they discover that good food isn’t the only crop these urban visionaries are harvesting. They’re producing stronger and more vibrant communities, too.

The evening will include updates on Oakland Food Policy, prizes, jam tasting and jam swap and more TBA. Bring a jar of homemade jam (chutney, pickles or anything else in a sealed, shelf-safe jar) to share and one to trade! We’ll provide the crackers. Presented by the Institute of Urban Homesteading and friends.

Arrive any time after 6pm to get your pizza and beer and socialize with farming friends. Program begins at 7pm.
