Garden, The | Review

Director: Scott Hamilton Kennedy Featuring: Danny Glover, Daryl Hannah, Antonio Villaraigosa Writer-director Scott Hamilton Kennedy’s The Garden tells the saga of the South Central Farm – an urban farm that was located at the intersection of 41st Street and Alameda Avenue in South Central Los Angeles. In the aftermath of the 1992 L.A. riots, the city government granted a revocable permit to the L.A. Regional Food Bank (a private, nonprofit food-distribution network) who converted the bleak landscape of rubble, litter and debris into a lush 14-acre farm (the largest urban farm in the U.S.). Simply dubbed the South Central Farm, the garden began to produce fresh fruits and vegetables and the local farmers were able to enjoy their own home-grown crops rather than rely on food stamps for subsistence. For over a decade the South Central Farm thrived, but in January 2004 the farmers received an eviction notice. The revocable permit was being revoked.
