Growing Cities is a documentary film about urban farming across the U.S. It follows two young men on their trip across the country as they discover how urbanites are revitalizing the social, economic, and ecological fabric of their cities by growing food. The filmmakers do everything from catching bees with urban beekeepers to working with bicycle-riding farmers who tear up lawns and plant gardens in their place. At the core of the film is re-imagining what is possible in urban settings and inspiring Americans to create Growing Cities of their own - places that are healthier, more sustainable, and socially just.
