Pollinate Event Series Kick-off: Film This Saturday!
Saturday, March 26 – Community Film Screening
@ OCHO Art + Event Space
How much can a garden change our world? The new acclaimed film, “Can You Dig This” might just help us answer this question: 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. 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. “When you put beauty in a place that has none, that’s a game changer.” — Ron Finley, the “Gangster Gardener” “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…. Let’s work together to create a farmers, growers, and makers market in Questa this growing season. Come discuss the possibilities at the potluck or following this inspiring film!
Admission is free for this film, but donations are greatly appreciated and encouraged. If every adult donates $5 dollars we can cover the cost of bringing the film to Questa ($100 film license). Kids and teens come for free! This is a special community screening. The maximum capacity for this event is 50 people. Help us reach this goal and RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org or 575-224-2102
