Help the Good Food Revolution

Local filmmakers Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette are trying to raise enough money to sponsor an airing of their documentary Growing Cities on PBS. The film is about urban farming and the positive impact it has on communities, and a showing of the film on PBS would reach a national audience. Want to help? Check out the duo’s Kickstarter campaign to donate. www.kickstarter.com/projects/growincities/growing-cities-lets-get-urban-farming-on-pbs
