"When Everything Collapses,....

...Plant Your Field of Dreams".

That's the tagline for the movie: URBAN ROOTS and Green Spaces is pleased to have the opportunity to screen it in San Antonio's only Food Forest: the Pittman-Sullivan Community Garden. This month, our Movie in the Garden is paired with Pittman-Sullivan’s 5th Annual Kite Festival. And as Green Spaces' 2014 theme promotes, local food is central to "Food Less Traveled: Good for You, Good for the Environment".

Come early to enjoy the FAMILY-FRIENDLY festivities. The kite festival starts mid-afternoon. The breezy March air and large open spaces around the garden are perfectly suited for kite-flying. In the garden, a station will offer the "found" materials and guidance for making your own kite. Relive one of the most environmental-friendly activities of your childhood.

Come mid-stream and join us for a BIT OF GARDENING AND EATING. Learn about the simple structure and easy management of food forests. Get some hands-on guidance from local gardening gurus.
This is the time to bring your dish to share for our pre-movie potluck.

Come just after sunset for a free outdoor MOVIE SCREENING.
Tote your camp chair or a blanket for the films starting after dusk falls.
URBAN ROOTS follows the urban farming phenomenon in Detroit. A timely, moving and inspiring film that speaks to a nation grappling with collapsed industrial towns and the need to forge a sustainable and prosperous future. We will also be sharing a few short films featuring: EDIBLE ESTATES with Fritz Haeg, GUERILLA GARDENING with Ron Finley, and PEOPLE'S GARDEN with our very own Caesar Valdillez.

Come to mingle, learn, and enjoy the fruits of San Antonio's community gardening community!!

    Inspiring! A few of us stood around and talked about it for over an hour in the dark! Disturbingly, there are too many similarities between San Antonio's east side and the imagery in Detroit. But the movie showed that it takes grassroots efforts to change perspective, to improve quality of life, and to change - utterly change - the shape and appearance of the built environment.
    Today there are 433 members of this meetup group. We can be San Antonio's change factor. We must take action. Join a garden, volunteer, or donate to Green Spaces community gardens program to start your day of change!

    Hey everybody. We're gonna have a great time tomorrow!
    I know a little rain is in the forecast but you can plan on us being there and staying there even if it sprinkles a little bit.
    Please note that even if it's raining in your part of town, it may NOT be raining AT ALL on our little garden patch.
    Finally, love the rain! We ARE earth lovers after all!
