Three young urban gardeners in Washington, D.C. got the very cool idea to tour urban gardens throughout the Northeast by bicycle, interview and film people along the way, and come back and make a movie of it to promote urban farming. Then last summer they DID it, and the movie premiered this week at a theater in Georgetown. Here they are – Liz, Kat and Lara, described as "revolutionaries" by Ed Bruske in his remarks to the assembled movie-goers.
Can you tell they’re in their 20s? The very demographic of the New Gardener we keep hearing about. But this is interesting – in the movie they mentioned that the gardeners they met were children, young adults in their 20s and 30s, and lots of immigrants. I wonder if the immigrants have been gardening all along, and it’s just the recent college grads that are actually new to farming.
