ABOUT THE FILM
Visiting local gardens, farmers markets, and other fresh produce projects in San Diego’s diverse urban neighborhoods, Land & Freedom speaks with folks that are taking advantage of the city’s reformed
urban agriculture ordinances. Residents are finding alternatives to a food system that has historically distressed low income communities, eating healthier with produce they’ve grown themselves, using community gardens like they would use parks, and displaying respect
for the neighborhoods they live in. Still, many people continue to struggle with the lack of affordable fresh produce readily available within neighborhoods and other resources to improve their lives.
