Following tonight's regular Third Saturday Vegan Potluck at Solterra Co-housing in Durham, the documentary "The Garden" will be shown in the Solterra Common House Cinema at 8:30. "The film follows the 350 families and more than 3000 people that made up the South Central Farmers and shows the evolution of the farm from its birth during the aftermath of the 1992 Los Angeles riots to a working, self-sustaining organic farm in the middle of a predominantly Hispanic immigrant and incredibly impoverished neighborhood in Los Angeles. Ultimately though, The Garden is not about the farm. The Garden is about the underclass in American society. It is the story of the way our cities treat immigrant populations, of backroom politics, of land developers with little conscience. It is a story of money, greed, poverty and power. And it is also the story of a group of people that nobody thought would have a voice, standing up to powerful interests and making themselves heard."
Those of you who prefer to socialize and/or play games are welcome to stay and do so on the screened porch, the library, or the children's room. Hope to see you tonight. Sue
