Can You Dig This

Join the Office of Civic Engagement for a screening of Can You Dig This on Thursday, April 21 at 5:30pm in the Webb Room. This documentary film, produced by Grammy-winning artist John Legend, premiered at the 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival.  Check out the film's trailer here.  

The film follows four “gangster gardeners” who discover what happens when they get their hands dirty — in the soil of South L.A.  As part of an urban gardening movement taking root across the country, people are planting to transform their neighborhoods and are changing their own lives in the process. Calling for people to put down their guns and pick up their shovels, these "gangster gardeners" are creating an oasis in the middle of one of the most notoriously dangerous places in America.

This is not a story of science and economics. This is a story of the human spirit, inspiring people everywhere to pick up their shovels and "plant some shit."

At the conclusion of the movie, you'll hear about ways you can get involved in Chester's own gardening movement.  Refreshments and movie snacks will be served.
