Edible City/Andrew Hasse

2009 – $5,000 General Support

Edible City, a film directed by Andrew Hasse, follows the stories of individuals who are fighting for sustainability and social justice by doing something revolutionary: growing a local food system.

Edible City explores issues of food security, sovereignty, and justice through a comprehensive view of Bay Area urban farming movements. By looking at everything from backyard gardens to city farms, it visits a fascinating and diverse group of people who are taking control of their food and reaching out to their communities. Edible City ties their struggles to the systemic problems plaguing the food infrastructure, economy, and environment, suggesting solutions that are large-scale and local, institutional and individual.
