The Film, "CAN YOU DIG THIS" follows inspirational journeys of four unlikely gardeners in South Los Angeles, 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 and "plant some shit."
City Market, the Farm-Based Education Network, Shelburne Farms and the Vermont Community Garden Network have teamed up to bring “Can You Dig This” to Burlington because we believe that growing food is empowering and we are inspired by the urban gardening movement around the U.S.
In South Los Angeles, the last thing that you might expect to find is a beautiful garden sprouting up through the concrete, coloring the urban landscape. As part of an urban gardening movement taking root in South LA, people are planting to transform their neighborhoods and are changing their own lives in the process.
