The Academy Award nominated documentary The Garden tells the story of an urban garden in South Central Los Angeles which began as a form of healing after the L.A. race riots of 1992 and the farmers’ struggle to hold onto the land as city and other interest groups try to take it away from them.

At 14 acres and over 300 families, it was the largest community garden in the country. The Garden chronicles their battle and, in doing so, brings to light issues of environmental sustainability, social justice and race relations.
