Planting for Peace (P4P) is not your typical film about gardening...(see http://www.ejmedia.org/p4p)
Co-written and edited by Boston youth, this film takes a close look at the young workers who are powering an exciting movement to revolutionize urban food systems. These new jobs not only help bring healthy, locally grown food to otherwise food deserted areas but they also develop young leaders through meaningful work.
P4P connects the anti-violence movement to the new opportunities in the urban green movement showing how closely related they really are. Topics include, food justice, food deserts, guerilla gardening, victory gardens and the Boston Bounty Bucks program that doubles the value of food stamps at farmer’s markets.
