Watch free screening of film about urban gardening

By |

A free screening of the acclaimed film Can You Dig This will be held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Oct. 21 at the Kehrein Center for the Arts, 5628 W. Washington Blvd. You can also watch it virtually.

Can You Dig This explores the urban gardening revolution in one of the largest food deserts in the country and follows the inspirational personal journeys of five “gangster gardeners,” planting seeds for a better life.

The in-person event is intended for those who live, work or go to school in Austin. There will be free snacks and a mini-farmers market; attendees will also hear from urban farmers and good food experts.

The screening will be followed with a discussion hosted by Austin Coming Together, One Earth Film Festival, Austin Garden Collective, Austin Community Food Coop and Austin Renaissance Council, as part of the Austin Eats Initiative.

Austin Eats is a collaborative working to rewrite the narrative around food in Austin. By synergizing organizations already promoting healthier food choices through grocery access, culinary entrepreneurship, food education, community gardens and urban farms, Austin Eats will recreate the community’s food access ecosystem.
