Truck Farm!

Truck Farm is a fleet of gardens-on-wheels, an award-winning documentary film, and most recently a children’s book and album — all teaching young people about the joys of growing food.

2011 Truck Farm Garden Contest

In Spring 2011, Truck Farm held its first ever Garden Contest, inviting kids across the nation to plant seeds in creative, quirky, and reclaimed spaces. Our fleet of truck farmers helped spread the word about the contest and held planting parties in their cities. Celebrity guests and food visionaries Michael Pollan, Alice Waters, and Marion Nestle selected the winner from among hundreds of young people who participated.

 

 

The Grand Prize went to Ivan Skrabalo of New York, NY, for his “Every Day Parsley Farm.” Ivan won a home-planting kit and signed DVD copies of KING CORN and TRUCK FARM.
