Little City Gardens

Description

Little City Gardens, a nonfiction feature, presents the magnetism and magic of a farm that existed in San Francisco from 2010-2016. The farm began with goals of engaging with a local community and a national food system, and it continued for six years as a beautiful place of work, creativity and connection. The farm was alive in the middle of the city. It was a place that breathed and responded to touch, and it made a lasting mark on all who stepped through its front gate. Little City Gardens is a film about the powerful relationship between people and land in the most unlikely of places.
