A friend forwarded your email about the video on
I am part of an organization called Greenest City -
we work in several different areas: greening, transportation and energy.
We've worked with quite a few community gardens as well - basically facilitation
in getting the process going and providing whatever ongoing supports may be
We plan to do a video on one of these gardens - at
a primarily Chinese seniors residence. I would like to hear about your own
experience with having this video made - technicalities, logistics, cost?
It would actually be very helpful - at the moment I am trying to put a project
team together and raise funds at the same time. We were thinking of making
a 20 minute video about the gardeners' experiences, stories and skills - the
unique and creative way they have adapted their culture/farming traditions to
growing food in the city. As well, the video would touch on the issue of
urban agriculture, food security and organizations involved with community
garden/ food issues in Toronto.
I would be very interested in knowing more about
the process you (Growing Power) went through and what some of the difficulties
might have been. Thanks very much! I would really appreciate
