Growing Cities

About This Episode


In a search for answers, filmmakers and native Nebraskans Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette embark on a two-year road trip across the U.S. to meet the dedicated men and women challenging the way the country grows and distributes its food — one vacant city lot, rooftop garden and backyard chicken coop at a time. The friends encounter families growing food to make ends meet, educators teaching kids to eat better, activists seeking a meaningful alternative to the industrial food system, and more.

Growing Cities examines the role of urban agriculture in the United States and its potential for revitalizing cities and changing the way Americans eat.
