Common Roots is a short documentary that shows how the East Boston community comes together in the face of gentrification, food insecurity, and climate change by growing food with Eastie Farm. Check it out here!
In the wake of Coronavirus, this message is more important than ever. When we grow our own food, we can support each other through difficult times. On Saturday, May 9th at 3PM EST, the filmmakers will host a panel discussion on community resiliency during COVID, featuring Eastie Farm director Kannan Thiruvengadam, City Life/Vida Urbana community organizer Gabriela Cartagena, and Reclaim Seed NYC founder Jacqueline Pilati. If you wish to attend, please RSVP. Follow them for updates @commonrootsfilm on Facebook and Instagram.
