The South Central Farm struggle is core to the food justice issues we work for everyday. Learn more about South Central Farms: http://www.southcentralfarmers.com.
There is also a new documentary, THE GARDEN, out exposing what happened to South Central Farm: In the wake of the 1992 Los Angeles riots, hundreds of mostly Mexican-American families came together and turned a blighted corner of South Central Los Angeles into an urban oasis; complete with guavas, papayas and enough fruit and vegetables to feed hundreds of families.

But now bulldozers are poised to demolish their garden... For a developer who wants the land to build warehouses. But, as farmer Rufina Juarez says: “Not this time.” “The Garden” explores the fault lines in American Society. It is the story of the country’s largest urban farm, backroom city politics, land developers, money, poverty and power.

The Garden, by director Scott Hamilton Kennedy, won best U.S. documentary at the recent SilverDocs festival in Silver Spring, MD.
