“Greening a Food Desert”


My First Documentary: “Greening a Food Desert”

I am especially excited to share with you my first foray into documentary film-making, "Greening a Food Desert". This remarkable story shows how one community member, Roger Horne, started an urban farm to provide residents of Liberty City, an urban food desert, with affordable access to produce, training in gardening, nutrition education, and environmental education. The other community members who are involved share their fascinating stories about how the farm impacts their lives and the community. I hope you will be inspired with ideas of how you can make a difference where you live.

I produced everything for this film, except that I licensed one song. I had a big learning curve to produce this, especially in the audio recording. It was a challenging environment in which to record because of the city noise at Cerasee Farm.

I hope you find it inspiring, entertaining and informative! Please feel free to let me know if you have any suggestions to improve it, or if you know any venues that you think might screen it. Thanks!
