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.

NEW! Buy the book/CD!

Community screenings update

TRUCK FARM is making the rounds! The film has been showing at all kinds of venues (tonight, catch it at the Schlafly Bottleworks in Missouri), paired with terrific outreach efforts by local organizations and even some appearances by members of our Truck Farm fleet. Go, truck farmers!

The film screened earlier this month in Washington, DC, as part of an event called Urban Agriculture on the Move, sponsored by the Neighborhood Farm Initiative, a DC-based non-profit serving as an educational resource for adults and teenagers working to engage in small-scale food production.

Folks from the DC Central Kitchen were on hand to give a peek at DC’s own truck farm, and to discuss different ways urban agriculture brings fresh food to city-dwellers. Representatives from the Neighborhood Farm Initiative discussed ways they’ve reclaimed underutilized green spaces.

If this sparks some ideas about your own community screening, get in touch! And if you’ve been to a TRUCK FARM screening in your community, we’d love to see (and share) your photos! Send them along to i[email protected]
