Community Gardening in the Marcy-Holmes Neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

This video was created using a participatory process that asked community gardeners from the Marcy-Holmes neighborhood of Minneapolis (MN) to show us their gardens, and to tell us their stories. The narrative is constructed from the words of these gardeners, who described not only the places and processes involved in gardening, but what it means to inhabit those places - to create new public futures for their neighborhoods in gardens and green spaces.

Featured gardens include boulevard and bump-out gardens in the Marcy-Holmes Neighborhood.
